The history of the Vaccaro estate is the story of a family,
a Sicilian family united by a great project: to make fine wines.
It all started in the 70’s when Giacomo Vaccaro and his wife Caterina bought a small farm in Salaparuta, an area in south-western Sicily devastated by the earthquake of 1968.
Here they decided to build their future with a business closely linked to the love for that beautiful and wounded land, and started growing grapes.
In 1999 the project grew into a company: the Vaccaro firm, a modern winery, strongly rooted in the passionate spirit of those who created it.
The same passion and the same care guide, today, the choices of the other members of the family who help the founder in running the company.
The passion of his children Catia and Carmelo who share the work in the winery with him, that of his grandchildren Luigi and Caterina, who will soon become active players in the family’s decisions. Catia, a graduate in economics and a talent for art, manages the marketing and corporate image of the winery with competence, character and sensibility. Carmelo, who studied enology and has a deep bond with the surrounding wine-growing reality, follows the entire production process, from the monitoring of the vineyard, through the selection of the grapes, to the winemaking and bottling of the wines.
Everyone’s commitment is built on the wealth of experience and knowledge of Giacomo and Caterina, offering the most demanding consumers wines that are easy to drink, and have a balanced body and fine fragrances.
