Tucked away amidst the rolling hills and quaint vineyards of Sicily, sits the splendid Planeta Winery. Established in 1600, this family-run estate has mastered the art of enology, producing a remarkable selection of Italian wines that echo a marriage of tradition and innovation.
Spanning over 370 hectares, Planeta triumphs over five different territories including Sambuca di Sicilia, Menfi, Vittoria, Noto and Mount Etna. Each wine narrates its own story, embodying the striking diversity of the Sicilian terroir. Wine tastings are often held within the ancient walls of the farmhouse; an experience that promises a tantalising journey for the senses.
Residing on the foot of the most active volcano in Europe, the terroir of the Etna vineyard lends a uniquely mineral-rich and dusky dimension to the wines. Varieties such as Etna Rosso and Etna Bianco, resonate with an intoxicating blend of fruity and smoky notes.
Lovers of fuller-bodied reds can relish in the offerings from the Menfi vineyard. The Mandrarossa wines bespeak boldness and richness derived from the intense heat of the region. One of Planeta's most acclaimed wines, the complex and silky ‘Cerasuolo di Vittoria’, originates from Vittoria; Sicily’s only docg region.
In an ongoing pursuit for excellence, Planeta also emphasises environmental responsibility. Groundbreaking solar arrays offset its carbon emissions and the use of sustainable methods have been implemented in the vineyards. These practices have earned them the ‘Sustainable Winery of the Year – 2020’ from the Italian Touring Club Guide.
Host to a formidable collection of exquisite wines and a rich history, not to mention its Italian charm', Planeta Winery invites you on a captivating exploration of Sicilian wine culture that you won't forget. From its passionate cultivators to the vine kissed grounds, every facet of Planeta is an ode to the love of wine.
