Barone Montalto is part of the area where was born, Santa Ninfa, on the North Western coast of Sicily. It is a winery which preserves the wine tradition and expertise of our Sicilian land. The majority of the vineyards are located in the Belice Valley, province of Trapani, where the Mediterranean climate is especially suitable to grown grapes, with its mild winters and warm summers.
