Azienda Giacomo Vaccaro / Sizilien

The Azienda Vitivinicola of the Vaccaro family is located in western Sicily in Valle Belice. The municipality of Salaparuta, where the winery is located, was created in 1968 by the great earthquake. Only a little later Giacomo Vaccaro began in 1970 to build his winery in its present form. As usual in Sicily, the whole family helped him, and so it is not surprising that the winery is still a family business today. The Valle Belice has been producing wine since the Phoenicians, who brought this and other cultures to southern Italy. Just as it was then, according to the criteria of organic farming, that the Vaccaros had to return to the natural methods of agriculture and follow their passion with full commitment. Salaparuta is located in the upper part of Valle Belice with its calcareous soils and its own microclimate. It is thanks to these special conditions and the commitment of the few winemakers around the modern village that, for the Salaparutas wines, a DOP Salaparuta DOP was finally defined a few years ago.
Without many flourishes, neat, straight-lined wines are made here. The grape varieties are essentially the traditional ones like Nero d'Avola and the white Catarratto and Grillo. A wine assortment of sympathetic down-to-earthness!
