About the producer
Our objective is to preserve our land so as to pass on what our forefathers left us: over 2000 years of history, culture and hard work so that we can handover to our sons and daughters an integral land, that is immense in its beauty and richness.
Naturalness is the principle that has always guided our work. This is the same “naturalness” that distinguishes our wines, which are the fruit of traditional and bioorganic winegrowing and non-invasive vinification.
“When I think of benchmark producers of Nero d’Avola one of the first names that comes to mind is Gulfi. The estate makes a number of single-vineyard Nero d’Avolas that provide an opportunity to explore the various shades this great Sicilian variety is capable of expressing.”
