Description




The Tenuta La Favola story has its roots at the beginning of the 1800’s when great grandfather Giuseppe bought “Le Buonvini”, a farm with a winery and olive oil press on a hill that was planted in vines, olives and carob that quickly became the summer residence of the family.
 
The farm passed down from one generation to the next. In 1990 Corrado renewed the vineyards respecting the typical ways of the zone, bought a small commercial olive press, and bought back some land that once belonged to the property, famous for the quality of the wine. He started the conservative restoration of the old house, renewing the farmers’ homes and the warehouses and started producing his own power with solar panels.
 
The property officially became a certified organic farm in 1997 and in 2002 the first wine of property, the DOC Eloro “La Favola” was introduced into the most important international markets. In 2013 the old family estate “Le Buonivini”, opened its doors to the public promoting projects and cultural meetings.

In 2013 the old family estate “Le Buonivini”, opened its doors to the public promoting projects and cultural meetings. 
 
Since 2014 the farm also offers a place to stay and relax with apartments inside the old courtyard, a kitchen facing the Nero d’Avola vineyards and the “Artists’ cottage”, in the middle of the experimental vineyard.
 
The farm develops around a group of old houses dating back to the beginning to the 1800’s divided into a work area that includes a “palmento” or place to crush the grapes to obtain the must, and an oil press used only by the farm, and in a residential area that goes down to the pool, the loggia and courtyard.
 
300 meters from the farm is the Lupica vineyard which hosts another small grouping of stone houses: the artists' cottage.
 
Visiting guests can relax in the relaxation rooms or by the pool and enjoy the breathtaking views of hectares of vineyards that slope gently down to the sea.
 
Wine lovers staying at the farm can enjoy tours of the winery and the vineyards, wine tastings of La Favola wines and a number of activities such as horseback and donkey riding, fishing, boat sailing.
 
At Tenuta La Favola guests' privacy is highly valued. The resort is made available to a single group (10 people) at a time for a minimum stay of two nights (3 days).
