Planeta, a leading winemaker for both Italian and international markets, has a strong presence in Sicily,
with 370 hectares of proprietary vineyards and five wineries located in different areas of the region.
A Journey in Sicily is the fruit of the Planeta family’s desire to open their wineries and areas to the public,
revealing an authentic snapshot of Sicily through its wines and wine-growing areas.
Sciara Nuova is the hospitality venue of Planeta on Mt. Etna’s volcanic lands with
nearby Feudo di Mezzo winery.
The Feudo di Mezzo winery is located on Mt. Etna in the contrada of the same name, in a spectacular position within a lava flow dating from 1566. Built using typical materials of the area, the Feudo di Mezzo winery is the
perfect blend of modern architectural design and local traditions. Five Planeta wines are produced here: Brut
Metodo Classico, two Eruzione 1614 (Nerello Mascalese and Carricante) and two Etna D.O.C. (White and Red).
Just a few meters away from Montelaguardia vineyards and surrounded by Sciara Nuova vineyards, the new
Planeta hospitality venue rises up on Mt. Etna. The ancient palmento, once destined to the wine making and now
wisely renovated, houses tasting areas and wineshop
