Details of wine

Nicosia winery born in 1898 represents one of the Sicilian realities most attentive to the production of wines with zero impact and respectful of biodiversity.

By virtue of this company philosophy, the adoption of certified organic cultivation was a natural step and strongly shared by all the people who work in this cellar.

The winery located in the small town of Trecastagni on the eastern side of Etna wanted to dedicate a range of labels to those who, in addition to wanting a naturally produced wine, require wines produced in full respect of biodiversity and without the use of origin substances. animal.

Back in 1898 Francesco Nicosia, the great-grandfather of the current owner, decided to open his first wine shop in Trecastagni, on the eastern slope of Mount Etna. This was the golden age of Etna wines, which – even then – were renowned and esteemed across Europe for their minerality and “volcanic” personality. Towards the end of the twentieth century, however, the family came to an entrepreneurial watershed, thanks to the tenacity, courage and innovative spirit of Carmelo Nicosia, the current owner. Investing heavily in expanding and restructuring the vineyards, and building a modern winery, he helped transform the family business into one of the leading players in the renaissance of Sicilian wine in Italy and around the world. The Trecastagni winery is the place where tradition meets ultra-modern technology. Covering a nearly 27000-square-foot space, over a total area of more than 20.000 square feet, among the spacious winemaking area and testing laboratory, large stainless steel tanks and barrels, the ultra-modern bottling line and the bottle aging area and the suggestive underground barrel cellar, the winery is where the heart of the company beats. Here, in the hospitable wine shop, visitors are welcome to sample the final result of the company’s efforts for themselves. In this veritable “refuge”, far from the frenetic pace of everyday life, standing before a majestic view of the volcano, guests at Cantine Nicosia can take part in tastings and events in which wine is always the star. Cantine Nicosia has joined the principles of sustainable viticulture to combine environmental protection and food safety. Using the most advanced techniques of precision viticulture, the winery has been able to reduce to a minimum the use of agrochemicals and fertilizers, with the aim of eliminating the presence of natural or artificial contaminants in the wine. The winery has long taken up the challenge of high quality with the aim of satisfying the demands of consumers, who are increasingly attentive to healthy eating and the traceability of every step of the production process. Therefore, Nicosia has earned official and internationally acknowledged certifications requiring the observance of a series of parameters and guidelines in company activities, work organization, production processes, relations with customers, suppliers and consumers, and environmental and food safety.
