I'm Paolo Calì.
I am a winemaker pharmacist who bet on a project that is focused on my territory, devoted to the cultivation of the vineyard and the production of wine, re-establishing the age-old tradition of my family in these same lands. My winery has grown together with me and those who work with me, with passion and dedication.It was the dream that I cradled as a child, the dream of reviving the countryside where my father took me every afternoon after school. I have the ambition to produce real wines, free from conceptual schemes, free not to pursue fashion and free to excite. I'm proud to have the privilege of transmitting my thoughts and beliefs into your glass and on your table.
The vines are cultivated on sea sands, shaped by the wind and rain like dunes, heated by the summer sun to become inaccessible. I decided to plant and cultivate only native Sicilian vines, such as Frappato,Nero d'Avola and Grillo, and to vinify them enhancing the peculiarities of the soil and the climate, which guarantees important temperaturevariations; all this translates into a marked sapidity and minerality,in enveloping perfumes and in a great elegance.

THE PROCESSING IN THE VINEYARD
Every year we cover hundreds kilometers, in the sun or in the rain, enlivened by the passion.
We are firmly convinced that to produce a great wine be essential to invest in the care of vines.
For these reasons we take care vine one by one. All sensitive operations are done by hand.
We think that only healthy vines, in a perfect balance, give us significant results.
THE WORK IN THE CELLAR
All operations are directed to minimize interments to protect the integrity of the wines and
their hit with the territory.
We love experimenting to try to improve and to provide you the best possible expression.
We aspire that our wine be ambassadors of the area and they tell the story of who have produced them.
On all wines we have decided to not use selected yeasts to start the fermentation.
We are looking for the highest identity with the wine grape variety.
We do a careful selection of the grape and every parcel is vinificated separately, to enhance all potentials.
We do not subject the wines to stabilization or filtration processes in order to maintain their organoleptic characteristics unaltered.
They are eight and each tells his story.
There is the ones tells of the sea of Sicily and what with its aromas you remember the scents. There is the ones he wants to be anti-conformist, who wants to impose to the attention for what he is, not for how others would it. Then there are those who have so many potentials that enclosing them all in a bottle is impossible. And finally there is the ones he tells of my son.
Here are my wines
