About Winery and Wines
In 1995 the family Planeta opened near the sixteen century Baglio the Ulmo winery with the firm intention 'to produce quality wines'. A young group and a family united by love and dynamic spirit dedicated to the production of wine and olive oil and the reception of visitors in the heart of the tradition.
The motivation to enhance the Sicilian territory as one of the most 'interesting in Europe in terms of wine, brought Planeta to grow; today there are six wineries and a mill distributed in south and south east of Sicily Ulmo at Sambuca di Sicilia, Dispensa at Menfi, Dorilli at Vittoria, Buonivini at Noto, Feudo di Mezzo at Etna in Castiglione di Sicilia, and finally, La Baronia at Capo Milazzo.
Between the Ulmo and Dispensa estates the history of our company began in 1995. We planted the first vineyards for Chardonnay at Ulmo, a few metres from Lake Arancio and from the 16th century farmhouse owned by the family for seventeen generations.
Dispensa, hidden among the hills, is today the centre of all our activities, with two wineries where most of our wine is produced.
