The noble Spadafora family has been producing wine for decades, but it was only in the 1990’ies that the family decided to begin bottling and marketing of the wine grown on the estate, where previously the wine has been sold in bulk. After testing and tasting the wines produced, the current owner Francesco Spadafora decided in 1993 that the estate should only produce wine from grapes grown on his land. Today the winery has 95 hectares of vineyards around Monreale growing both indigenous and international grapes.
