Family run winery using absolutely natural farming techniques

Product ID: 32963
Description



Discover La Tenuta la Favola, an organic winery recognised in the world, led by a family team, located in an important area between Pachino and Rosolini, just ten minutes from the most beautiful beaches of southeast Sicily.
The organically certified farm has been in the family for generations. Corrado and Valeria Gurrieri consider themselves as “permanent guests” on their family estate. The family is quite unique: horses, dogs, and chickens play a recognized and protected role and they are considered part of the enlarged family of the Tenuta la Favola.

Since 2014 the farm also offers accommodation, 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.
To the north you can see the plume of smoke rising above Mount Etna, and to the south the blue of the Mediterranean and Ionian seas. The...

The family is quite unique: horses, dogs, and chickens play a recognized and protected role and they are considered part of the enlarged family of the Tenuta la Favola.

Since 2014 the farm also offers accommodation, 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.
To the north you can see the plume of smoke rising above Mount Etna, and to the south the blue of the Mediterranean and Ionian seas. The paths between the vines are white with limestone and at night when the moon shines, the land does too.
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.
Thanks to a continuous collaboration with international companies that work in organic farming, the farm carries out a series of experiments that over time have allowed us to reduce human and machine intervention in the vineyards to the bare minimum.
Visiting wine lovers can enjoy tours of the winery and the vineyards and wine tastings of La Favola wines.
This winery is part of the Italian Organic Wine Route.
