PLANETA - A JOURNEY THROUGH SICILY!
Although the family have been involved in agriculture for five centuries, through seventeen generations, Planeta did not plant their first vineyard until 1985. Still family run, they are a young company with ancient roots.
Planeta now own vineyards in five different areas of Sicily – Menfi, Vittoria, Noto, Etna, and most recently Capo Milazzo, growing indigenous and international grape varieties. Planeta produced their first wine in 1995 – a Chardonnay, a wine they are now justifiably world famous for – their Menfi Chardonnay is a classic wine and the flagship of their innovative range.
They have conducted in-depth research into ancient Sicilian grape varieties, culminating in Cometa – the great white wine of Southern Italy. Elegant and powerful reds are also produced that will not disappoint red wine lovers. Then there are the extraordinary wines, both red and white from Etna’s volcanic soils, and the famous Cerasuolo Di Vittoria – Sicily’s only DOCG wine is a delicious delight. Whatever your tastes – Planeta offer something outstanding for every palate!
