“And when the wine is sent to far-off places, it encounters other people, other cultures, other histories and other wines.
The bottle of wine on a table in Hong Kong, Dublin, Charlotte or Malindi settles into the history of that distant place which the wine has brought closer, the cultures intertwine and the magic is once again restored, every day, always”.
Valle dell’Acate is one of the most well-known and active vineyards in southeastern Sicily. The company is run by Gaetana Jacono, part of the family’s sixth generation of winemakers.
The company is committed to local territory, to bringing its traditional winemaking culture and products to the outside world, and to the use of eco-sustainable winemaking techniques.
The vineyards extend over 100 hectares, most of which have been replanted from 2001 to the present day with prized local and international vines.
By cultivating the most highly-prized autochthonous vines, utilizing technologically advanced systems and taking advantage of winemaking skills that have been handed down generation after generation across two centuries, today Valle dell’Acate can offer its clients a series of wines of undeniable value: radiant, dynamic and aromatic. These include its famous DOCG Cerasuolo di Vittoria, DOC wines like Il Frappato, Insolia and Zagra, plus IGTs like Il Moro, Bidis, Rusciano and Tané, which are obtained by combining a selection of the best grapes from our most important harvests. The company’s wines have earned important recognition on an international level.
With total annual production of around 400,000 bottles, Valle dell’Acate’s wines are successfully exported around the world, and can be found on sale in the US, Europe and Canada, as well as emerging markets in Asia from Japan to China, Russia and India. The wines are well known and appreciated in Italy, and in Sicily in particular.
