Humility, respect for others, love for the land and the want to do: they are the principles that have always inspired the Nicosia family and their winery which are closely linked to values and family history since its founding in 1898. Cantine Nicosia welcomes you on the eastern slopes of Mt. Etna in a green corner of Sicily, suspended between the sea and the Volcano. Here is one of most picturesque vineyards; wineries here are where tradition and technological innovation come together in a harmonious union. Due to the unique local culture and their focus on quality, Nicosia wines are a reference point in Italy and around the world, especially for those who love the Sicilian wines.
