IN THE LAND OF CERASUOLO:
A JOURNEY THROUGH RITES OF WINE
AND BEAUTY OF CULTURES
From the docile profiles of Hyblean Hills to the shores of a crystalline sea: it is in this strip of land, in the southernmost province of Sicily, that production of Tenuta Bonincontro is located.
From this plain, characterized by a sweet and harsh countryside together – where large expanses of crops and pastures are furrowed by the white color of dry stone walls, where carob and olive trees share the task of offering shade and coolness to the ancient farms, where the work and the rest of men are still marked by the clock of tradition – our wines come to life, children of the great winemaking tradition identified today in the Cerasuolo di Vittoria wine route.
All around You’ll discover a unique and unrepeatable territory: a world-wide intrigue of naturalistic, archaeological, architectural and historical beauties, so much so as to appear on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Here the late baroque churches and palaces of Ragusa Ibla, Modica, Comiso and Scicli or those in Vittoria‘s liberty style not only attest the glories of a noble past, but also the industriousness and genius of a people who never left overwhelmed neither by foreign dominations nor by the nature that shocked this corner of Sicily with the earthquake of 1693.
in the South East: art, culture, traditions, food and wine and unspoiled nature
KEEPERS OF TRADITION,
But the Hyblean Lands, in addition to offering high-quality autochthonous wines – from Frappato to Nero d’Avola, to their classic blend: Cerasuolo di Vittoria, the only Sicilian Docg – also know how to offer gastronomic journeys unimaginable elsewhere: from the grainy and unique Modica chocolate, cold worked in the ancient Aztec way, with Ragusan cheeses known to all chefs in the world; from PDO oil to the finest honey.
A surprising mix of art, culture, traditions, food and wine and unspoiled nature which finds its highest expression here. And Tenuta Bonicontro intends not only to preserve and pass on that, but also to enhance, working every day to spread its charm, defend its identity and increase its recognizability. And using the same care with which he chose to be the custodian of the ancient local rows. Which, alongside the dry stone walls, redesign the geometries of a unique rural landscape.
