Fuedo Principi di Butera

In the heart of Sicily lies the Feudo Principi di Butera, in the province of Caltanissetta, which is recognized today as one of the best wine making regions in Italy thanks above all to its production of high quality, prestigious red wines. The history of the Feudo Principi di Butera is fundamentally connected to the noble, millennium long history of Sicily, ancient Trinacria, which thanks to its geographical position was the crossroads of Mediterranean civilization. The 320 hectare estate also extends into the ancient lands of the Feudo Deliella and includes over 180 vineyards in an exclusive terroir, thanks to the warm and dry climate, which optimizes the development and perfect ripening of the grapes, a sea breeze which carries all its benefits to the vines and the warm, strong sunlight which is so typical of the southern areas of the island.
