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.

Being drawn to the top of the fountain, the water passed through many pipes in various forms, then falling into the cistern beneath, it boiled with the force of its falling and waxed green like the sea. In the midst whereof, Galatea, as in the sea, bewailed her newly dead Acis, who lay on the shore, and as if he now began to be dissolved into a river, he sent forth two streams, one at his mouth, the other at his wound [ Ovid, Metamorphoses ] Today for #valentinesday we remind one of the most romantic #legends of our culture #Sicily #experiencesicily
