The Di Giovanna family

Producing organic wines in Sambuca di Sicilia

Our history

The Di Giovanna family property is managed by brothers Gunther and Klaus.
The winery is nestled in the mountainside of Monte Genuardo, a protected nature reserve. Their organically cultivated vineyards surround the winery in the small zones of western Sicily’s Sambuca di Sicilia and Contessa Entellina.

The 5th generation property of nearly 100 hectares is comprised of 65 hectares of vineyards, 14 hectares of olive trees, 21 forest hectares and wheat fields.

The five family vineyards are located in the small DOC’s of Contessa Entellina and Sambuca di Sicilia in the heart of the Terre Sicane zone.

The vineyards Miccina, Gerbino and Paradiso are located at a medium elevation of 350 to 480m with tufaceous, calcareous and clay mix soils in Contessa Entellina.

The high altitude San Giacomo and Fiuminello vineyards flourish at 650 to 830m above sea level in the mountains surrounding the wine cellar in Sambuca di Sicilia.

The vineyards are planted with international and indigenous varietals after extensive soil studies in the 1980’s. The white varietals include Chardonnay, Grillo & Viognier and the red varietals Nero d’Avola, Nerello Mascalese, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot. The soils consist of volcanic tuff, chalky, limestone and clay mix.

The family vineyards are worked by hand from pruning until harvest, following organic methods from the vineyards to the wine cellar.
