About the winery
Principi di Butera, our state-of-the-art winery in Sicily, is steeped in a rich patchwork of history, tradition and extraordinary wines. Originally owned by the noble Branciforti and Lanza families, this area truly represents a crossroads of Mediterranean culture. After years of arduous restoration, the estate has been restored to its original splendour and its ancient watchtower now offers breathtaking views of the vineyards. Principi di Butera is an outstanding site for vines, where the coastal breezes nurture the local grape varieties, Nero d’Avola and Insolia, in order to make wines that are warm, intense and full of sunshine. The surface area planted with vines covers 170 of the Estate’s 320 hectares. Subsoil with layers of salts, gypsum and sulphur, deposited from the Miocene epoch onwards (6 million years ago), due to the evaporation of the waters of the Mediterranean sea.
