Additional Information


On our farms we grow different varieties of grapes. The vineyards extend in three different macro-areas that are located around Alcamo up to a maximum of 15 km away. The vineyards insist on different soils and different microclimates, near the sea or in more inland areas. This diversity is then found in the grapes. There are grapes that have a perfect balance and they deserve to be vinified alone, like those coming from the Camporeale area, while the others have merits but some lacks.

This is where the ability to interpret one's own territory and grapes comes into play. It is from this idea that the "blend" of our macerated white wine is born, for which we used Catarratto grapes from the area of ​​Monreale (internal area) and Grillo and Zibibbo di Alcamo (near the sea). The Catarratto gives the acid shoulder, the Grillo the structure and the Zibibbo the aromatic part.

Maceration binds and integrates these properties. He was born as an experiment and loved it. Fashions pass, wines remain and the world of wine has often been the victim of fashions. We try to build our identity regardless of passing fashions, trying to interpret our territory and our grapes.
“Elios” was born from the passion of two young Sicilian friends. With a true love for their land, they joined together to develop their families’ farms and to bring them to their full potential. Renewing the work of their parents, producers of grapes and olives, they devoted themselves to a production model that can recognize the right value to these goods. For this reason they decided, starting also beekeeping, to produce wine, olive oil and honey in full respect of their natural features. MODUS BIBENDI was born from the strong conviction that wine should be conceived trough a natural vinification that excludes invasive intervention and the use of chemicals. A wine that is a pure expression of Nature and of the territory from which the grapes come.
