ABOUT THE DI GIOVANNAS
Following in the footsteps of our Great Grandfather Cristoforo Ciaccio who planted the first vineyards in 1860 and aged his wines in the cellar of the old farmhouse Fiuminello, the Di Giovanna family has continued to cultivate its vineyards with unwavering dedication and pride for generations. In 1985, Aurelio Di Giovanna and his wife Barbara, initiated in-depth study of their terrains micro-climates and soils. Following, carefully cloning, and testing, they identified the vines best suited for each vineyard. Each property was delineated into 5 unique vineyard sites: Miccina, Gerbino, and Paradiso at 350-480 m above sea level in the village of Contessa Entellina (PA). The Fiuminello and San Giacomo vineyards flourish at 700-830 m above sea level in the mountains surrounding the town of Sambuca di Sicilia (AG).
The Di Giovanna family is committed to cultivate with organic methods their vineyards, preserving their land and family tradition. All of their products are certified organic through “Suolo e Salute srl” “Soil and Health Corp.” since 1997.
