- Planeta is a reality that brings together 5 vineyards and wineries in the most important wine regions of Sicily
- Cantina Sciaranuova rises on the slopes of Etna, where the lava makes the soil fertile and the grapes grow lusciously
- Choose from 6 different tasting experiences
Planeta brings together five estates with wineries located from west to east throughout Sicily. It is also a new way of thinking and conceptualizing a trip to Sicily, marked by the discovery of the particularities of each place. Menfi, Vittoria, Noto, Etna and Capo Milazzo: 5 stops to learn about, part of the "continent of wine" that is the Trinacria region visible from Planeta.
In 2008, after having long sought the best land for planting the vineyards, Planeta stopped on the north side of Mount Etna, between the lava flow and the woods surrounding Passopisciaro: here are planted vineyards of Nerello and Carricante, and in 2012 , the winery was also born.
