Back
to the future!

Debora and Luigi have match their skills:  she had been engaged for years in the family winery, he is a company manager. They, together, have a common project that cannot be disjoined from tradition and that looks forwards to the future.  Moreover, this is a near future considering that their three children have always breathed the air of the vineyards, they know the earth and, above all, they are eyewitnesses to their parents’ hard work and sacrifice.

Bio company evolution

Purchase of the company: June

2016

After a short rental period, in which the existing vineyard was resumed, the purchase of the company was formalized in June 2016.

First harvest: September

2016

The first harvest, done by hands and in boxes, yielded 40 quintals per hectare, and allowed us to obtain our first label, the Cubburo 2016, a blend of Nero d'Avola and Syrah barreled for almost 12 months in French barriques. During the same harvest we started the conversion to organic.

Organic crop system certification: May

2019

Three years after the conversion period, organic certification was obtained.

Building restoration: January

2019

The renovation of the eighteenth-century building has been started and is well underway. At the end of it, we will get the cellar, the tasting room and six de-luxe rooms for guests.
