For centuries the manor has towered above the “Pianogrillo” hill. It is a true manor house of bio-diversity amid cypresses and olive groves, overlooking a green plain known as “Piana dell’Acate”, heaps of live stock (namely pigs native to Sicily known as “Nero dei Nebrodi”) within the ancient county of Modica and Chiaramonte (nowadays Province of Ragusa). Originally, during the Middle Ages, the building on the hill was a watchtower to lookout for and defend against the Saracens.
The list of quality producers making exciting wines in the Ragusa region is long and varied, and includes Arianna Occhipinti, COS, Gulfi, Paolo Calì and Valle dell’Acate to name a couple.
