G. Milazzo Farm

Five Generations of Winemakers
The history of Azienda Agricola G. Milazzo passes through five generations of winemakers and
continues today with Giuseppina Milazzo and Saverio Lo Leggio, husband and wife and united in
he desire to produce wines under the sign of the excellance. Giuseppina and Saverio’s business
takes place in 100 hectares of vineyards on the hills of Campobello di Licata, in the Agrigento
hinterland, at 400 metres above the sea level and a few kilometres away from the Mediterranean
sea, in a land called Terre della Baronia.
Land extremely favourable
The land of Terre della Baronia are rich in limestones, with high temperature changes between day
and night, very ventilated with the breeze from the coast, and a singular soil varieties. As a matter of
fact, each of the eight section of the estate is characterised by unique morphological and
pedoclimatic characteristics. As a result of this precious and natural division the Winery area has
been divided into section and they have destined each vineyard to its terroir elective. The Terre
della Baronia are a set of crus, a fundamental concept to understand the detailed work done in the
vineyard first and in the cellar after.
The work of the Azienda Agricola G. Milazzo
The business production is mainly from local Sicilian vines. They are Nero D’Avola, Nero
Cappuccino and Perricone for red wines, while among white wines there are Inzolia and Catarratto
Lucido. The Chardonnay requires a special mention: it was imported and planted 40 years ago to
produce spumante according to a classical method. In other words, an artisan viticulture and a
sustainable agriculture which results in constant attention to the land and plant care. As a result,
human resources are the real company assets and an added value on which Giuseppina and Saverio
constantly invest with an ongoing formation. Also, the BIO certificate seals the commitment that the
winemakers at Azienda Agricola G. Milazzo have always born in mind to produce their wine. It is
also a testimony of the responsibility which derives from being the guardian of the land they
cultivate. A collection of prizes which counts more than 400 awards in the main international wine
competitions.
