Planeta family is one of the eldest families of winegrowers in Sicily now in their seventeenth generation and operating 5 wineries spread around Sicily and producing wines from many of the DOC zones. While the current family has a focus on innovation and modernity they never distance themselves from historic and traditional interpretation of wine. Their patient and meticulous work has always been directed to the past as much as to the future; on the one hand profoundly linked to the oldest Sicilian traditions of wine making with its heritage of indigenous varieties, and on the other an interest in those international grape vines which are best adapted to these territories, without neglecting the most vigorous and imaginative investigations into other varieties. Respect for the environment and development of biodiversity are the watchwords of this company.
