Santa Tresa

One of Sicily’s oldest and finest wineries, producing top quality, indigenous varietal wines from Vittoria. In perfect harmony with nature and with ideal grape-growing weather conditions, Feudo di Santa Tresa’s vineyards benefit from the Sicilian sun and cooling sea breezes, far enough away from the sea. Here, we are able to produce organic wines with the ultimate expression of our grape varietals and the soul of Sicilian character. Considerable replanting and upgrading on the 50 hectares “terra rossa” vineyards, alongside the highest quality winemaking, results in exceptional wines.

Tasting Notes

A wine made from two classic Sicilian grapes, Cataratto and Grillo, which are fermented on their skins, just as wine was made in years gone by. Intensely golden in colour, which comes from the skin contact and ageing in large oak barrels. The prominent aromas are of coconut and tropical fruit, with an undercurrent of soft spices. Rich on the palate, balanced by a well-integrated acidity. This wine boasts excellent structure and length.

Food Matches

Try as an aperitif or, with light summer dishes.

Vinification

The grapes are carefully hand-harvested into small baskets and only the best quality are selected to make Vanedda. The baskets of grapes are refrigerated at 10°C for around 24 hours. After this is completed, the grapes are carefully de-stemmed and fermented on the skins for at least 2 days, after which we separate the wine from the skins and finish the fermentation in 30hl oak barrels. Following fermentation, the wine stays on the lees for at least 7 months and remains in bottle for a further 6 months before being released on to the market.
