Planeta, Sicily’s Premier Wine Estate

Planeta Winery is recognized as the leading wine estate in Sicily and an authentic fine wine empire. The winery has various vineyards and estates in the island of Sicily, which have great soil types for growing.

Planeta is an advocate of arts and later on launched a project called Uomini e Luoghi meaning “Men and Places” in union with Nuvole Incontri d’Arte.

Wine grape varieties

The winery sends invites to both Italian and international artists to travel with them and witness some of the awesome places like Modica and Ragusa and guests use the Ulmo estate as a place to create artistic works.

The History

In the 1990’s, Planeta Winery was discovered by cousins Alesso and Santi Planeta as well as their uncle – Diego Planeta who is popular in the region because of his trail-blazing role at Settesoli wine cooperative.

Later on, Diego’s daughter joined the group and recognized her as the an essential figure of the company.

While Planeta is still a new commercial winery, their Ulmo estate dates back to centuries. The innovative winemaker of Planeta was Carlo Corino, who recently passed away.

The winery gained reputation and respect for being pioneers in matching local soil types to both native Sicilian wine varietals and international grapes.
