Planeta’s first winery, Ulmo, together with an old family farmhouse, is situated on the banks of the Arancio Lake in the eastern portion of Sicily. The soil here is deep and chalky - perfect for the production of Planeta’s great white wines: Chardonnay and Cometa.
Founded in 1995, Planeta is a ‘Journey through Sicily. ’ A journey through 6 distinct wine estates from west to east, that proceeds from Sambuca di Sicilia and Menfi as far as Vittoria, Noto and Etna. Six ‘boutique wineries,’ each inspired by the particular requirements of the vineyards; Ulmo at Sambuca di Sicilia, Dispensa at Menfi, Dorilli at Vittoria, Buonivini at Noto, Sciara Nuova on Etna at Castiglione di Sicilia, and the new winery, La Baronia at Capo Milazzo. Each one inspired and constructed in harmony with its surroundings and dedicated to its terroir.
