The Cellar and the Estate: Princes of SpadaforaOne of the oldest Italian families is that of Spadafora, a noble Sicilian family, whose first certified traces date back to 1230. Over the centuries the House has dominated five principalities, a duchy, two marquisates, a county and twenty-five baronies. Some of the members of the family have held prominent positions in the Kingdom of Sicily and in some European countries. The founder of the farm is Don Pietro dei Principi di Spadafora, who receives the farm as an inheritance by succession after generations. The estate suffered a lot of damage during the 1968 earthquake but Don Pietro is committed to both the reconstruction and the redevelopment of the company, re-evaluating the native vineyards and bringing allochthonous vineyards to Sicily for the birth of quality wines. Thus bringing the house to a new luster with wines recognized and tasted all over the world.
