Description

In Sicily, in Belice Valley, a land that in the last hundred years has been the crossroads of peoples and cultures, privileged and favoured place of meetings, dialogue and exchange between ?artists, architects, musicians, poets, farmers, artisans, workers, women and young people?, is celebrated the union, somewhat atypical, between a winery and a cultural institution, one of the most important of the Mediterranean, generating new ?Fermenti Contemporanei?. Tenute Orestiadi is a project born thanks to the impulse of the Orestiadi Foundation, based in Gibellina in Baglio di Stefano, also rebuilt after the earthquake, and Cantine Ermes. The purpose is to promote the artistic and cultural Mediterranean heritage. Tenute Orestiadi moves in this direction valuing one of the oldest Sicilian traditions, the wine and winemaking, considering it as an important and distinctive identity of the island.
