La Lumia

 

The 150 hectar family estate of Barone Nicoló La Lumia lies on the plains of Licata located at the extreme limit of southwestern Sicily overlooking the African sea.  40 hectares of this noble estate are devoted to vineyards where the climate is generous and mild winters and warm summers and autumns full of sun grace the land.  The Baron is dedicated to maintaining the honor and prestige of his family who settled here around 1300 and to carrying on the antique traditions and knowledge of diverse methods of agriculture and wine production handed down from his ancestors.  The special composition of the soil of this hilly coast and the beneficial affects of the nocturnal ocean breezes, coupled with antique rules, modern methods of technology, and the artistry of the winemaker, favor the production of wines with a unique taste and aroma. Only grapes grown on their estate are used to make their wines and originate from indigenous vines, a selection among the best in Sicily; Nero d’Avola, Inzolia, Nerello Mascalese and Frappato. Today, Baron Nicoló follows the philosophy of rigorous balance between constant evolution and rigid respect for the antique traditions in order to keep successfully producing wines of typical strength and absolute quality.
