The Santa Tresa Winery is an example of how business organization and passion for the land manage to coexist creating one of the most innovative and interesting productive reality of recent years.

We are in the red lands of Vittoria, where all of them flow under the banner of organic culture, which in addition to being a certification has a real lifestyle.

The reopening for the life cycle of the vineyard and for the biodiversity present in the area give personality and warmth to all the wines produced by the Santa Tresa Winery, becoming products ambassadors of the warm Sicilian land.
