At the end of the 1800's, Giuseppe Benanti, grandfather of Dr. Giuseppe Benanti, began the production of wines on one of his father's old farms on the slopes of Mount Etna, at Viagrande (Catania). In 1988, Giuseppe Benanti revived the family's old passion, with an extensive and selective study of the Etnean soils highly devoted to viticulture. He also investigated particular clones of indigenous vines and new oenological techniques to reproduce ancient fragrances using the most modern practices of vinification, in a perfect union of history and reality. From this five year study, wines of unique taste were produced recreating old flavors and keeping them intact over time.
Our wines have a strong personality and carry the culture and passion for wine of the Benanti family, always driven by respect for the places, terroir and old "palmenti". This passion, after revealing the marvels of the Etnean territory, has guided them to Pantelleria and then Pachino.
Today the company is placed in a market range of high quality level products and the request for its wines is strongly increasing. This is mainly due to the quality of its wines, known throughout Italy and abroad, and attested by many awards given annually by the most important national and international competitions.
Eastern Sicily, with the oldest viticultural areas of the Etnean regions and Pachino territory, bears the Benanti seal. With climates and soils extending from continental - on Etna - to North-African - in Pachino - in this area of Sicily different and various typologies of wines are represented, ranging from white to red wines to passiti and liquorous wines. It is not by chance that the oldest and different D.O.C.s, fall within this area.
Always attentive to the territory, its specificity and biodiversity and with a desire to express the real essence and richness of Sicily through its production, the firm, has also recently researched and selected excellent vineyards in Pantelleria to produce the renowned Passito of Pantelleria
