Hardly any winery impresses as much with its excellent price-performance ratio for high-quality wines as Farnese Vini from Ortona in southern Italy. The secret of the enormous quality lies in the soil, which makes it easy for the winery to achieve the highest quality. Abruzzo, Puglia, Basilicata, Sicily – the list of growing regions of the noble grape varieties for the white and red wines from Italy is notable, as well as palatable.
Farnese Vini was a young company that, in just a few years, has become the leading export company in the South of Italy with a production of over 24 million bottles. These amazing results are certainly due to a careful policy always in search of high quality and new marketing strategies. Farnese’s success is not only about remarkable numbers; much of the company’s reputation comes from the many awards achieved in Italy and abroad.
The group has two wineries on the island of Sicily: Cantine Cellaro and Vignetti Zabù. Both are located in Sambuca di Sicilia and produce Sicilia IGT red and white wines from native and international varieties including Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah, Grillo, Zibibbo, Nero d’Avola and Nerello Mascalese.
The great success of Farnese’s productive and commercial system has been expanded from Abruzzo to Puglia, Campania, Basilicata, Sicily and Tuscany, maintaining the main objective of producing high quality wines that are able to meet the expectations of the most demanding clients. In the future strategies of Farnese Group, southern Italy will play an increasingly important role because it can undoubtedly produce wines with an excellent quality-price ratio.
