Company details

Where everything originates.

It is said that in the Middle Ages pilgrims coming from the Middle East and direct to Santiago de Compostela in Spain,
passed from Sicily to reach the Via Francigena, passing from the territory of San Giaime (dialect translation of the Spanish name “Jaime” which it was called the Spanish Saint).
The legend says that among other items, the pilgrims donated Syrah vines from Persia to the locals,
to thank them for their hospitality.

The passion for this type of red wine was transmitted for generations arriving to Mr. Gaetano Cicco, grandfather of Alessio,
and his family.

“Only with passion you can obtain something special”.

The same passion that Alessio inherited from his grandfather Gaetano during the long summers in Sicily,
when, already as a child, learned the different cycles of the vineyard trough the seasons.

Study and travels around the world have increased his desire to do not remain trapped in the stereotypes of a classic farming culture, reinforcing his desire to innovate starting from the origins. .

Consequently his wine is not “built” according to the needs of the global industry, but is a natural wine that restores dignity
to his homeland and to the entire Sicily.

Sicily, land of history, flavors and traditions. A unique region in the world as unique is its “heroic” mountain Syrah
“Tenuta San Giaime”!!
