DeGregorio – Sicily
An old country village, borns around a 13th century watchtower; a 16th century cellar where with ancient techniques they used to produce a delicate and intense wine; a small mill created to cater to the personal needs and finally, at the end of the 17th century, the birth of a small primary school, with a few classes, where young teacher arrived on the backs of horses. This was the reality of Ragana village (the word comes from the Arabic language “ Ras-hana”, which means friendship ground) where, taking the spirit of ancient traditions, Ugo Testoni Wine, produced from these lands and vinified in this winery, was known and appreciated throughout the province and beyond.
His daughter Maruzza and her husband Ascanio, togheter with their children, have renovated the old cellar, trying to renew a mythical memory, in the harmonious integration of the past experiences and new wine innovations.
