On the charming foothills, overlooking Mandranova plain, Alessandro di Camporeale Estate was built, in this ancient and enchanting land where agriculture has long been a mainstay.
Out a total of 50 hectares, 35 hectares of vineyards are spread out over an area that benefits from a mild, semidry climate, 400 meters above sea level. In addition, 2 hectares have been set aside for the production of olive oil. It is in this fertile clay and limestone-based soil that the Alessandro family has cultivated native grape varieties, such as Nero d’Avola, Catarratto, Grillo and Inzolia and
international ones like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Viogner and Sauvignon Blanc.
All work in the vineyard is done by hand, following organic farming principles and making use of small but important measures: roses, precious sentinels warning of fungus attacks; green manure, to
promote soil fertility and protect it from erosion; and measures to support biodiversity, such as planting hedges and shrubs near the rows of vines to promote the establishment of many precious
organisms which combat parasites.
