A virtual tasting of Valle dell Acate, Winemakers of terroir driven wines
Time & Location
About The Event
Sicily’s beloved Valle dell’Acate has a long and storied history amongst the top estates in Sicily, as the Jacono family can trace back their winemaking roots here to the nineteenth century. Thanks to this heritage, Valle dell'Acate has specialized in the cultivation of the finest and most luxuriant native vines that grow in these lands.
Farmed organically the estate produces one of the finest examples of Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG, traditionally Sicily’s greatest wine. The other celebrated wines from the estate include the gorgeous Frappato, Grillo “Zagra”, and old vine Nero d’Avola bottlings “Il Moro.
Each individual wine in Valle dell’Acate’s most prestigious line is born of soil that has been identified and carefully selected to help characterize the individual grapevine, resulting in a final product that is a special, unique expression of the earth that produced it. The company always operates with the idea that the “terroir” represents an important added value in producing wines. Each wine encapsulates the essence of Sicily and the Ragusa province, as well as the Jacono family’s winemaking history and Gaetana Jacono’s strength and passion.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn the history of Valle dell’Acate, its wines, and the seven different soils found in the vineyards, the area of Vittoria, and on the famous indigenous grapes of the region – Frappato, Nero d’Avola, and Grillo
