Principi di Butera
Feudo Principi di Butera is situated in the southeastern part of the Province of Caltanissetta part of the DOC district of Riesi, Sicily. The estate is approximately two hours from the city of Palermo, Sicily’s capital. It is an extremely old and historical estate dating back to 854 AD and once belonged to noble families, such as Sicily’s first prince. The Prince resided there beginning in 1543 and held the estate until the end of the 19th century. The 334 acres of property are dedicated to grape vineyards and 3,000 olive trees, another important production by the estate. After conducting thorough research for the best-suited areas for the cultivation of grapes, the Zonin Family reconstructed the winery and caves along with major renovation on the vineyards to produce world class wines. Its proximity to the sea, optimal elevation, and abundance of sunlight combined with its rich soil and hilly terrain provide ideal conditions to yield outstanding wines.
