The Arancio winery was constructed to make quality single-varietal wines and is equipped with cutting-edge machinery.
All of the tanks are made of stainless steel and have small dimensions. The entire winery is climate-controlled and many barrels permit us to refine wines with great structure and intense aromas.
The evolution of the wines is constantly supervised by two winemakers and a team of seven assistants. The mission of this expert staff is to create high-quality wines that are rich, intense aromatic and elegant with soft tannins.
In homage to the Sicilian tradition and territory, the winery of the Arancio Estate is constructed in the traditional baglio style (a rustic villa). The mix of state-of-the-art technology and traditional architecture of the winery reflects the style of the final product.
The 1,700 acres of vineyards are located on the southern coast of Sicily and are housed in two holdings: Sambuca di Sicilia (Agrigento) and Acate (Ragusa).
The vines are cultivated in straight lines, with approximately 2,200 vines per acre and a production of approximately 4-5 lbs. of grapes per vine. The vineyards are cared for on a daily basis by a group of five expert agronomists and a team of 100 people in the fields. The vineyards are also monitored by a computerized system that precisely manages the cultivation of the vines and the harvest of grapes. All of these measures are taken in order to obtain the highest level of quality Sicily has to offer.
The vineyards of the Arancio Estate are the all-bearing foundation of our winemaking philosophy. We always keep in mind that the high quality brought out in the winemaking process comes first and foremost from the vines, themselves.
