The vineyards of the cellar that is owned by Antonino Mazzara witness the current of air from eight different directions. Hence, it was justly baptized as Ottoventi. The cellar is located at the foot of Mount Erice that overlooks the western Sicilian plain. The diversity of the landscape in this part of Sicily can also be experienced through the distinctiveness of each and every wine of this cellar. On one hand, the radiant Passito wine made from Zibibbo grapes will enliven you with its citrusy aromas and pleasant taste; on the other hand, the ruby-red Nerello Mascalese will mesmerize with its velvety tannins and elegant mineral-filled fruity flavor. The cellar comprises a farmhouse and a courtyard following the traditional rural design of Sicilian settlements.
Along with an elegant wine tasting room and a spacious bottling area there is also a sophisticated and commodious area that can be used for various indoor events of this cellar. The barrique area where the exquisite wines of this cellar achieve maturity can be compared to an underground path with a pebbled floor. The vineyards of Valderice area rest at an altitude of 140 to 280 meters and the vineyard of Trapani area enjoys an altitude of only 80 meters. Hence, a large distinction can be found in the wines crafted by the Ottoventi cellar. With the help of his son and his daughter, Antonino scrutinizes every single detail of the winemaking, from cropping to bottling, with utmost diligence and steers clear of using any kind of chemical substances during production and vinification in order to maintain the sublimity of the wines engineered by his tireless effort.
