Vini Patria

A brief history

The old and roman consular road, today the Etna wine road, intersect between two volcanic formations: Mount Mojo, extinct volcano and Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. Solicchiata a small town in Castiglione of Sicilia, is home to Patria, an agricultural and wine producing estate thats has inherited the antique winery TORREPALINO.
The PATRIA cellars take their name from the Patrìa district, near Monreale, where the Di Miceli family bought a feud in the distant 1950. Many years later, in 1992, Di Miceli Francesco, owner of the soc. Coop. PATRIA, thanks to his experience as an agronomist and oenologist, took over the old "TORREPALINO", a historic wine cellar born in 1971 with headquarters in Solicchiata of Castiglione di Sicilia, on the north side of Etna.
The history of Torrepalino intersects with that of the Aragonese watchtower which stood to defend and guard the territory. At the top of the building stood a "palino", a directional indicator that directed the caravans and wayfarers between the commercial port of Riposto and that of Milazzo.
