Company details

The winery Patria takes name from Patria quarter, at Monreale. It was that land that the family Di Miceli bought a feud in 1950. Many years later, in 1992, the President of the Soc. Coop.Patria Francesco Di Miceli with experience as agronomist and winemaker, took over the old cellar TORREPALINO historic winery that it was born in 1971, located in Solicchiata, a small town in Castiglione of Sicily, the northen side of Etna at about 700 above sea level. The story of Torrepalino is connected with the Aragonese Watch Tower that rises up to defend the region. At the top of the construction there was a direction indicator called Palino that provided orientation for processions of travellers and wayfarers. On one side is the commercial port of Riposto, and on the other that of Milazzo. Both ports are leading players in Sicilian commercial wine industry transport and the movements of people and goods. From here is born the name Torrepalino. The president Di Miceli decided to change name in Patria, an agricultural and wine producing estate that has inherited the ancient legacy of Torrepalino. In this way they formed a group of wineries in various parts of Sicily and the main winery in Solicchiata that receives and works all the grapes given.
