The soils that distinguish the farm are regosols from clayey rocks, vertisols and brown clayey and calcareous soils. These characteristics give wines great structure, intense pigmentation with compact and deep coloration, complex olfactory sensations, good acidity, softness and longevity so as to be highly appreciated also by Northern European and overseas consumers.
Cantine Patrì has solid roots, a tenacious story that was born in the territory of Butera in 1936, when Rocco Paterna gave life to the farm, it was then the son-in-law Giuseppe Patrì who took the reins with foresight and determination.
And with the same determination, years later, his son Rocco and his wife Patrizia with their children Giuseppe, Elisa and Daniela, decided to enhance the extraordinary wine heritage of Butera, allocating a third of the two hundred and fifty hectares of property to the production of wines.
Today the company is the pride and ambassador in the world with its labels, the expressive liveliness of the DOC Riesi, the DOC Sicily and the Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG.
Quality classifications that have a distinctive value in the wine world, but also a transparency tool for consumers and a legislative means of fundamental importance to safeguard and enhance the territory and the agricultural traditions. Cantine Patrì is continuously looking for an increasingly higher quality standard of all company products, has a respectful vision of the environment, a rigorous management of the vineyards that does not renounce research and experimentation to tell the territory and its extraordinary plants with excellence, and raise the quality level of each individual label.
The reason that pushed the Patrì family to make wine is to be found in the vocation of the lands and grapes which, combined with the expert hand of man, is now able to arouse suggestions that only Sicily can offer and interpret consumers needs oriented towards quality, elegant, well-structured and Mediterranean red and white wines.
Cantine Patrì is a thriving company, present in the territory of Caltanissetta, with 50 seasonal employees and a team of specialized agronomist technicians who closely follow all the stages of cultivation and production.
The favorable climate, the interesting and varied heritage of vines with their high value in chemical-physical and organoleptic characteristics, represent a great opportunity to broaden horizons and compete at the highest levels.
The farm, which boasts several acquisitions, covers approximately 250 hectares, a third of which is cultivated with vineyards with the varieties of Nero d’Avola, Frappato, Syrah, Catarratto, Insolia, Grillo, Zibibbo, all vines of the Sicilian and international oenology.
The remaining part of the company is dedicated to the cultivation of fruits such as peaches, apricots, Italy grapes, Red Globe grapes, seedless grapes and quality pears.
The olive trees, another pride of the farm, represent the Nocellara del Belice, Biancolilla, Nocella Etnea and Moresca varieties.
A sustainable agriculture
Cantine Patrì was born from the love for the land and a deep-rooted wine history.
The environment is considered a real production factor, an element to be considered at the basis of the entire work. That’s why the company is dedicated to the protection of the environment and its specificities.
The entire production of Cantine Patrì is part of a harmonious project that starts from the meticulous care of the processes, to the choice of the best bunches up to the cellar where a meticulous control of all phases begins with modern and respectful vinification processes.
The company invests in research and scientifically valid early diagnosis with professional consultants and favours the use of sustainable products and organic methods; each sector has obtained important certifications: Global Gap (Good Agricultural Practice), ISO 14001, ISO14064, ISO 14046 and ISO 50001.
And all under the supervision of the oenologist Antonio Landolfi, who, with skillful creativity, has been able to combine the knowledge of the vines with the most innovative fermentation and vinification techniques.
Cantine Patrì, which has been doing business with tenacity and initiative for more than eighty years, believes that the rational use of the resources of a territory, among the best in the world for the culture of the vine, can lead to the production of quality grapes and birth of great wines.
It has chosen photovoltaics for the production of electricity to be used in the cellar and for the extraction of water from the subsoil and uses eco-sustainable environmental management methods.
The work at the farm is based on integrated crop protection, defined by Legislative Decree 150/2012, a work philosophy focused on the prevention of plant diseases using non-chemical, but technical – agronomic methods.
Wine vineyards have been managed organically since 2019, a work that will lead to the acquirement of the organic certification for grapes and wines.
We respect the yield of soils and plants and protect water and soil resources with the use of products with a lower environmental impact.
And all this without ever forgetting market trends and the needs of those who today want to find an experience in wine that involves the senses and never gives up on a quality tasting.
