Four wineries, three provinces, a single affinity, a single theme which unites southern Sicily from east to west. Noto, Vittoria, Sambuca and Menfi. The birthplace of Planeta wines lies within these four areas which are the hottest and driest parts of the whole island, and all fairly close to the sea.
But the resemblance finishes here and the many differences must be reckoned; the soil, the vines, the altitude, the wind, among so many others.
When there is dawn in Noto, it is still dark in Menfi; and when the sun sets in Vittoria, it is still dusk at Sambuca. And then there are all the responsibilities which depend on man; the strength to gamble, the power of optimism, and the conviction that the potential of action can be effective even in Sicily.
