About Feudo di Santa Tresa

Feudo di Santa Tresa is an organic estate in Vittoria, southern Sicily, where wine has been produced continuously since 1697. In 2002 it was taken over by Stefano Girelli, Marina Girelli and Massimo Maggio, who set about restoring the estate to its former glory. The sunlit, sea-breezy vineyards provide perfect conditions for organic growing with minimal intervention. Their approach to viticulture is very holistic: as well as grapes, they grow citrus, nuts and veg to fertilise the soil, and keep local bees. Water is drawn from ancient wells on the farm, and all the grapes are picked by hand.
