The Planeta family has been deeply involved in Sicilian agriculture for 5 centuries and 17 generations. Their work on the island has contributed to the regeneration of Sicilian winemaking, and the company today cultivates vineyards and olive groves, producing wine and extra virgin olive oil, in five areas of the island from east to west.
Located on the northern slopes of Mt Etna, Planeta’s Sciaranuova winery is embedded between the “sciare” (solid lava flows) and flourishing oak, chestnut and olive woods. In this harsh landscape grow the Carricante, Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio - the territory’s main native grape varieties - and also Pinot Noir and Riesling, emblems of the company’s constant search of knowledge and agronomic experimentation.
The Planeta family have always combined their passion for Sicily with a desire to warmly welcome those who wish to discover it. Because of this their wineries have never merely been places to produce wine but have also been devoted to hospitality, linked to cooking, nature and the local culture.
Visit the winery at Etna and you will experience the uniqueness of the place, the distinctive wines produced there and the beauty of the countryside. Walk around the estate and you will discover a small natural amphitheatre and contemporary art installations by local artists.
For a full immersion into Sicilian wines, we would recommend visiting all the Planeta wineries. Contact us for an itinerary suggestion and prices.
