This Sicilian estate just an hour southwest of Palermo and they source fruit from around the ancient town of Gibellina and of course on Mt. Etna. Tenute Orestiadi is a project born of the Orestiadi Foundation, based in Gibellina, and a local co-op Cantine Ermes. "On the gentle hills of the Trapani hinterland, we find this type of land, rich in silt-clay substances, compact and resistant to drought. Thanks to its characteristics it appears to be the ideal habitat for the farming of many varieties, of both red and white grapes, and becomes for us the perfect soil for the cultivation of our Syrah and Nero d'Avola. The latter is used as varietal as well as blended for Ludovico, wine dedicated to Ludovico Corrao and the jewel in the crown of the cellar."
