Alessandro di Camporeale
Alessandro di Camporeale is a Sicilian winery where the new generations rediscover their ancient identity, sharing a productive project that has solid roots in the history of the Alessandro Family. We are in Camporeale, a small agricultural center in the province of Palermo, in the Belìce Valley, amidst pleasant valleys dotted with hills 600 meters above sea level. It is the Plain of Mandranova, a natural landscape of extraordinary beauty, like few in Sicily, in which suggestive vineyards run along the horizon line. Here the three cousins of the Alessandro Family renew their winery, looking to the future with a new passion and hope, to continue a family history that has become the symbol of a very valuable Sicilian winemaking territory.
The winery boasts 35 hectares of vineyards, out of 50 in total, and 2 hectares are destined for the production of oil. It is in these clayey soils the Alessandro family aims at enhancing native varieties, such as Nero d'Avola, Catarratto and Grillo, and international varieties such as Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc, which are well adapted to the Camporeale territory. All work in the vineyard is done by hand, following organic farming principles and making use of small but important measures: roses, precious sentinels warning of fungus attacks; green manure, to promote soil fertility and protect it from erosion; and measures to support biodiversity, such as planting hedges and shrubs near the rows of vines to promote the establishment of many precious organisms which combat parasites.
Tradition, experience and a deep knowledge of the land and vineyards are the cardinal rules of Alessandro di Camporeale in safeguarding the values of the company and in producing quality products.
