Fall in love with Sicily at Poggio di Bortolone
Here is what you will live
Welcome to the Azienda Agricola Poggio di Bortolone, founded by the Cosenza Family at the end of the eighteenth century, immediately after Sicily’s transition out of feudalism and the annexation by mainland Italy.
Since that time it has been passed down from father to son and today Pierluigi Cosenza, Ignazio's son, is the current owner and manager of the Poggio di Bortolone Estate. Pierluigi will be the one that will welcome you at the estate for a great wine tasting experience!

With this wine tasting experience you will enjoy a guided visit to the vineyards and olive groves of the estate with a particural attention also to the wildlife and wild flora of south-eastern Sicily. You will then visit the winery and discover the secrets of the companys' making process, before tasting 4 wines (1 rosè and 3 red) paired with local cold cuts and cheese, plus the home made olive oil.
A perfect moment to discover the soul of this amazing region!
