In one of the most charming places in Eastern Sicily, the fertile Valley of Noto, lies the Eloro doc zone, one of the best suited to cultivation of the Nero d’Avola and Moscato di Noto grapes. It is here that we find the Le Mandrie and Gaudioso estates, which have been owned by the family of Baron Sergio from generations. A historical family estate, that turned into a modern winery under the management of Baron Giovanni Sergio. The ancient outbuildings have been renovated and reorganized to house modern winemaking facilities. By employing modern technology and ancient knowledge it recovers the elegance of its native vine: Nero d’Avola. The Barone Sergio winery, in light of the vocation of its environment is naturally suited for the production of Doc Eloro Nero d’Avola. A portion of the winery is devoted to a characteristic cultivar named Moscato di Noto and some plots to international grapes. The whole area of Barone Sergio winery consists approximately of 75 acres of Nero d’Avola, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grillo, Moscat and Petit Verdot. Giovanni Rizzo is the enological advisor who takes care of the whole wine making process; he works with the agronomist professor Lucio Brancadoro (University of Milan).
