TERRE DI NOTO

In 1989 the winemaker Nino Di Marco, in love with the area of Noto and Pachino and major qualitative peculiarities of its varieties: Nero d’Avola and Moscato di Noto, decided to begin a process for the construction of a Winery capable of uniting rich history of the area with the modern technology in the production of Wines.

Today the company “Terre di Noto” covers about 35 hectares of specialized vineyards with cellar, cultivated mainly Nero d’Avola and Moscato, but also the main international varieties.

The company comes under the production of DOP Noto and Eloro, which are bottled in addition to wines with IGP Terre Siciliane. Also produces extra virgin olive oil in the area DOP Montiblei. The company is part of territory of the Val di Noto, a land rich in artistic beauty, beaches, natural landscapes, archaeological sites, local products. This creates a unique mix of tourist attractions offering visitors endless opportunities for choice to spend their stay in this land.
