- Store Information
Our fine winery was born in Gela, Sicily, in 1908. At the moment, Gela is still the location of our “Cantina” (wine cellar), where Giuseppe Casano keeps selecting the best grapes – keeping in mind the ancient traditions of his family.
He created different, limited editions brands. Under the names Enoè, Ismarico and Danila, he produces most of the best wines from Sicily, known worldwide: Nero d’Avola, Nero d’Avola Novello, Insolia Chardonnay, Nero d’Avola rosè or Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our vines are grown following the “alberello”-pruning – a technique which keeps the vineyards from growing too tall. They are located in the clayish lands of Gela that offer an ideal habitat due to their capability of holding the humidity. Licorice and wild berries contribute to give the grapes unique flavors.
The manufacturing is done in a natural and manual way, as well as the collection of grapes: this way, it is possible to make an accurate selection of the single grapes.
