BUSH-TRAINED VINES YIELD AN ORGANIC SICILIAN WINE
In the very heart of Sicily, between the plain of Gela and the plain of Catania, lies the city of Caltagirone, in the province
of Catania. This is the region that gave birth to the Suber wine, made from an indigenous, organically-grown grape variety.
The wine has a distinct flavor and a strong, yet elegant, character, qualities that derive from a special combination of terrain and climate. Traditional vine cultivation techniques are combined with a vinification process which uses the latest technology giving a wine of natural quality while at the same time protecting the environment and respecting human labor.
The Daino estate vineyard lies about 20 km south of Caltagirone, near the Bosco di Santo Pietro woods.It occupies over
6,500 hectares in a setting of natural beauty and is tended using ancient techniques handed down by skilled winemakers
over the centuries. Cultivation of the Nero d'Avola, Frappato and Alicante varieties produces Suber, a wine with a distinctive, intense taste, while the name comes from the majestic specimens of Quercus Suber (cork oak) which populate the woods.
On the Daino estate i Vigneri Staff specialised in bush training tend the vines by hand in every growing stage taking care
to protect the environment and work in harmony with the land. The vines are supported by chestnut wood stakes while the shoots are tied with biodegradable, environmentally friendly twine made from pampas grass (Cortaderia Jubata), which
grows spontaneously at the margins of the vineyard
