the farm and the farm house in Ustica

Get into the farmhouse from the road of Tramontana, walk along the cobbled path as far as the Sacramento rock among the vineyards giving onto the sea, surrounded with stone walls and hedges of prickly pears…

You will discover the secrets of an amazing island full of wonders both over and under the sea Deep in the luxuriant green part of northern Ustica, less than one km far from the main built up area and 200 mt from the sea, you will spend your holidays on the farmhouse and meet the products of our farm: wine, lentils and oil.

Tempo di vendemmia. Le ultime piogge hanno rinfrescato il clima e la vigna. Dopo un anno di lavoro cominciamo a raccogliere i frutti ed è adesso che tutto realmente inizia. Tra cassette traboccanti di ottima uva, lo zibibbo in appassimento e il mosto che fermenta, siamo inebriati di aromi, sapori e speranze per la nuova produzione. La strada per le prossime bottiglie è ancora lunga ma la partenza promette bene. Ce la metteremo tutta anche quest’anno. Guarda le foto della vendemmia 2016 sul nostro profilo fb. Facebook
