Our agricultural agency started on the slopes of Etna, in Belpasso to be precise, a small town in the city of Catania, situated in the heart of eastern Sicily.
The production tells a story of a family: everything started from selling homemade master wine directly from Nonno (grandfather) and Nonna (grandmother) Papales’ home around the fifty’s, from that moment on the vineyard culture has been passed from father to child up to today.
We have made a lot of progress throughout the years, and today our production benefits from two extensive fields and a charming Show-Room where it is possible to savor and enjoy our products along with excellent food and wonderful company.
People are the pulsating heartbeat of our property, we dedicate ourselves in bring the beauties of our territories on our tables. Moved by our strong passion, love and respect for our land, all values that inspire us daily into our work to guarantee our Customers, genuine and high quality products.
Tenuta Papale was born from a family’s dream. The production is mainly concentrated on local wine and oil, which greatly benefits from the volcanic soil that hosts our cultivation.
In addition to the two vast fields, it is possible to visit our Show-Room situated in Belpasso, with the opportunity to buy our products while having the possibility of experiencing our products with complete tastings.
The vineyard area is strategically distributed in terraces of volcanic rock at 750 meter in altitude. Cultivated with Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes, particularly indicated for the production of young and fresh wine, but also more complex and structured blend primarily Etna Rosso.
The work process is the similar for the entire product (steel silos) but the refinement process is articulated in different stages.
The preferred olive variety is the Nocellara Etna, considered the best Italian cultivars because of its intrinsic peculiarities and vigorous appearance.
The love for our traditions and our respect for nature are the values that inspire our work daily, as we desire to guarantee our customers genuine and high quality products.
