The Trecastagni winery is the fruit of many years of hard work and a place where tradition meets ultra-modern technology. Covering a nearly 27000-square-foot space, over a total area of more than 215000 square feet, the winery is a modern interpretation of Etna’s age-old and glorious “palmenti”, the buildings where Sicilian wine was once made. Here, amid the spacious winemaking area and testing laboratory, large stainless steel tanks and barrels, the ultra-modern bottling line and the bottle aging area, is where the heart of the company beats. This is where Nicosia wines are born, evolve and mature, and where, in the hospitable wine shop, visitors are welcome to sample the final result of the company’s efforts for themselves. In this veritable “refuge”, far from the frenetic pace of everyday life, standing before a majestic view of the volcano, guests at Cantine Nicosia can take part in tastings and events in which wine is always the star.
The winery has long taken up the challenge of high quality with the aim of satisfying the demands of consumers, who are increasingly attentive to healthy eating and the traceability of every step of the production process. Therefore, Nicosia has earned official and internationally acknowledged certifications requiring the observance of a series of parameters and guidelines in company activities, work organization, production processes, relations with customers, suppliers and consumers, and environmental and food safety.
