Santa Cecilia is our benchmark wine produced from the most important Sicilian grape variety, Nero d’Avola. The wine expresses elegance, power, balance and emphasis on the unique aromas of Sicily, and now is finally a point of reference for red wines from indigenous Sicilian grapes.Its name is derived from that of our family – Planeta di Santa Cecilia.
Our Merlot has enjoyed international attention since its first vintage. It has a small production from the hilly vineyards of Ulmo and Maroccoli. This exceptional presentation of this noble grape, rich, round and powerful, is found in the winelists of the most prestigious restaurants and winebars round the world.
Today Planeta’s Chardonnay is an icon for the whole of Sicily. The vines of Ulmo and Maroccoli which create it are unique in their location and terroir.

La Segreta takes its name from the wood that surrounds our vineyard at Ulmo. This young fresh wine produced mainly from Grecanico grapes, introduced into Sicily more than 2,000 years ago, gains personality and style with the addition of international variety grapes.All the grapes are carefully cultivated in Planeta owned vineyards.
Its name is taken from the wild shrub which covers the valleys around Lake Arancio with its yellow flowers in springtime. It is a single variety Grecanico, produced from the historic 25-year old Ulmo Vineyard, and thus able to express to the utmost the unique characteristics of this noble and ancient Sicilian grape.
