Vanita is a fairly young winery set up 5 years ago in the town of Sambuca di Sicilia, one of the most noble areas for Sicilian vine-growing. The vineyards are situated in the hills above lake Arancio, the water of this lake is a vital nourishment for the vineyards during the hot Summer months and allows the grapes to reach the perfect ripening.
Farnese House dates back to 1582, based in Caldora Castle which has been restored and modernized to include offices and underground cellars where a lot of the top wines are aged prior to bottling. Farnese was restructured in 1994 and quickly became one of Italy's leading producers with vineyards in Ortona, Apulia, Basicilata and Campagna. All wineries have and are producing highly acclaimed wines with two of their wines in the top 10 of the 2010 Luca Maroni Guide. These wines along with all wines from the Farnese group can be described as wines that 'deliver' in every sense of the word with taste, quality and sensible pricing.
