A brief history
Located on the western cost of the island, at Mount Erice foothills in the heart of the DOC Erice wine route, the estate lays on a classic hillside sicilian landscape, intermixed with wooded areas and with sloping land plots which are renowned as being particularly vocated to vine growing, from immemorial time.
The soils are, in fact, primarily composed of clayey areas and calcareous sandstone, intermixed with marly limestone.
The property benefits from an ideal breezy, maritime microclimate, as it insists on a windy area at an altitude of approximately 350 meters above the sea level, with a significant different range temperature between night and day.
Such climatic ideal conditions and geo-pedological characteristics allow Serramarrocco’s wine estate to produce wines of its own background, tipicity and rare elegance.
At the top of the Serra, the ruins of the 17th century Baglio di Serramarrocco overlook upon vineyards and Egadi islands’ enchanting landscape.
Serramarrocco is also 6 kms. away from the temple and amphitheatre of Segesta which are regarded as one of the most famous archeological sites in Europe.
