The organic Domaine of Aldo Viola comprises 8 hectares near the city of Alcamo on the northwestern coast of Sicily, today it is governed by Aldo, son of Don Ancilino. A rigorous selection process assures that only the highest quality grapes are used for the label of Aldo Viola.
The Aldo Viola wine is a product of true passion and know-how transmitted over four generations. Aldo, son of Don Ancilino, was raised in the rhythm of wine making. Their goal is to fuse science with tradition to safeguard their land which is ideally suited for wine growing.
Excellence, Nature, and Tradition are the three axes of development pursued by Aldo. The small scale of his production allows Aldo the luxury of taking charge of the entire process.
The naturalistic approach, both in the winery & vineyard, is the key to preserve the original complexity of the grapes.
