About the location

Menfi stands on the Porto Palo foothills jutting out into the Sicilian sea opposite Africa and overlooking Porto Palo, a fishing village and quaint summer resort that once served as a harbor for the Greek colony of Selinunte. The long, sparsely populated coastline has 8 km of beaches with characteristic dunes and wild lilies in the sand. It's an unspoiled place, surrounded by vineyards and washed by the clean water of the sea: Menfi has held the European Blue Flag for 16 years and has gained a reputation as a pristine bathing resort and its beautiful natural landscape.

About the Estate

This hilltop working estate first appears to be a typical rural hamlet surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Your hosts are top Sicilian wine producers who are attentive to every detail. Its fourteen rooms, each with a private terrace, and accented with the scent of the olive grove make it a truly inspiring place.

About the nature paths

Three routes full of surprises among flora, fauna, old wells, springs and historic vines.

The main route, offers a surprising biodiversity and begins from the old houses in the middle of the Nero d'Avola vineyard. The whole path is accented with many points of interest from the perennial plants indicated with small labels to old wells dating back to 1689.

Travelers often spent the night at the Ulmo baglio or the little Arab fortress of Mazzallakkar, of which the ruins are still visible on the edge of the lake. As the gates of the fortress and the baglio were closed at a certain time, late arriving travelers climbed the footpath up the mountain and took shelter in a recess of the rock near the spring called La Segreta. La Segreta restored travelers and their horses with its pure water. Another path also begins at the same place as La Segreta, but then diverts to a path that runs through the middle of the vines.

About the wineries

The original winery of the family stands on the banks of the Arancio Lake, near the town of Sambuca di Sicilia. Inside, at ground level, are the fermentation vats, while below are the barrels for maturing the best selections of Chardonnay and Fiano. Its overall capacity is about 1,200 barrels. The winery is devoted to the production and maturation of the white wines Alastro, Cometa and Chardonnay.
