Feudi del Pisciotto

Sicilia

As part of this new Sicilian Renaissance movement, the Feudi del Pisciotto estate, the first Sicilian DCC Group company, is making its contribution complemented by the experience gained by Castellare di Castellina and Rocca di Frassinello. The company is located in south-eastern Sicily just minutes from Caltagirone (Sicily’s capital of pottery), Piazza Armerina and Vittoria, close to Villa Romana which has miraculously remained intact, at a distance of 7 km from the sea. The estate dates back to the 1700s and was one of the largest in Sicily. The old building includes the wine-making plant or “Palmento”, from the Latin word Paumentum, referring to the act of pressing something. Pressing the grapes, in tanks which then allow the must to fall to the bottom, as this has been found to be the best technique. Restored without any modification made to the existing structure, the Palmento is connected to a modern cellar built to produce up to 10,000 hectolitres of wine using the most advanced technologies available. In part of the palm grove (“Palmeto”) and the old manor house (“Baglio”) a Wine Resort has been created, offering 10 rooms and a restaurant above the barrel room, which visitors can admire through the glass floor.
