This is how we introduce ourselves, emphasizing the word ‘pleasure’ because we find it convincing and accurate, because it tells about us and our desire to be part of your day, and through the aromas and flavors revisited in a glass, help you find those little sensations that make life more pleasant.
To us, it is not enough to be a well-organized winery that does well on the market and has good results: every day, we want to offer the people who drink our wines the finest products. We know that expertise and professionalism are values that are deeply rooted and that good practices are built on them. That is our mission.Our brand tells about us: it reveals the family history through its members and its traits, expresses our ambitions, our roots, and our land.
Giacomo is the shield, the founder who in a hug embraces the members of the family and protects the grounds of the estate.The diamond at the center represents transparency, as well as the strength of the bonds and alludes to Caterina, wife and mother.The declining curves symbolize the rolling hills of the lands of Salaparuta, a rich and fertile area with a strong wine-growing vocation.And they outline the silhouette of a hawk flying over the vineyards, representing the unceasing search for excellence.
The Vaccaro firm seeks to make the most of its wine heritage through rigorous selection in the vineyard, careful work in the cellar, and research.
The traditions handed down from previous generations are therefore improved and updated constantly by technological innovations. In our cellar everything is geared toward functionality: after the harvest, strictly done by hand, the grapes are sent off in a short time for winemaking. The wines are fermented in steel silos at a controlled temperature, while the red wines are left to age in a small cellar built in the basement. To give the wine the right complexity, aging takes place in barrels and casks. Here the wines are constantly monitored and tasted by experts: only once the wines reach their maturity will they be bottled and continue aging.
The bottling line is modern and highly technological for a better preservation of the organoleptic characteristics of each wine. This is our philosophy: the pursuit of quality in the respect of the environment, the exaltation of the terroir with the enhancement of its deepest peculiarities and consumer protection. All these elements play a key role in our choices, but we do not seek only enological rigor or research cellar techniques: we consider them only starting points. To us, our passion is the genuine ingredient that makes a wine a great wine.
