The peculiarity Terre di Fauma guide our work from generations

Among the generous lands of "Feudo di Fauma", between Agrigento and Realmonte, it extends the farm of the "Tenute Cuffaro". Over 14 hectares that enjoy an enviable exposure to the south-east of which 12 cultivated with vineyards and the remaining olive trees. We are located on a plateau at 300 m. above sea level, that of the "Scala dei Turchi" to be precise, but sheltered by hills all around: a condition that guarantees a perfect micro climate for sun exposure and excellent ventilation make it naturally healthy vines and grapes. The terroir is of medium texture and very dark, typical of soils naturally rich in humus: the physical and agronomic characteristics of the soil combined with climatic ones favoring a high quality production. Each plot of land is carefully cultivated with methods able to

combine traditional craftsmanship philosophy to modern convenience with the goal of a flourishing and always genuine production. Fertilization is "sovescio" (green manure) of legumes, with field beans, alternating the use of organic fertilizers. Thanks to the healthy position of the vineyards, plant protection treatments are restricted to the exclusive use of sulfur. The grapes are grown espalier with guyot pruning. Each screw, as in traditional crops to tree, is located about 1 m distance from each other to facilitate the production of a few bunches per vine but by the very generous qualities. This production philosophy is underpinned by a strategy that respects the current regulations and a direct control of the entire process, from the stage of the winemaking cultivation.
