MenfiSicily.

The uncontaminated deep blue sea, with its remarkable scenery of sandy dunes covered with dwarf palms and sea lilies. The bright sunshine, the fresh breeze blowing from the ocean. Unforgettable landscapes of a beautiful valley that lies in the South-western part of Sicily, where the Belice River gently flows into the Mediterranean. A focused and sustainable viticulture, close to the amazing Greek ruins of Selinunte.

Sea and wind, air and light, and the fascinating history of human civilization. This is what you can find inside our wines.

Travel notes

Diario di viaggio

Between a blog and a winery notebook: a personal digital moleskine where I take my notes on winemaking, tastings and events, people I meet, places I see, our everyday life.
