Le Dimore del Quartetto


Categories , ,

For five centuries and through seventeen generations, our family has been involved with the course of agricultural evolution in Sicily. Our history is the story of a journey through time and space, through the five areas – Menfi, Vittoria, Noto, Etna, Capo Milazzo – where today we produce our wines, our olive oils and the places of our family hospitality. The ethics of production and the protection of the environment, the countryside and the culture of each place, through sustainable long-term viticulture, wineries perfectly integrated in the landscape and wines which perfectly represent each territory, are common to our presence everywhere.
Vittoria is one of those places redolent of history and the long agricultural tradition of our family; even our ancestors disagreed about whether it would be better to cultivate vines here or at Menfi. We learnt from children to recognise the aroma of Cerasuolo di Vittoria, thus it was natural to travel along the island’s southern coast to produce it here, in its own great country. The Dorilli estate was established by renovating the big country house which stood at the centre of an ancient landholding; we replanted the vines which had not been grown there for a long time, we restored the winery and the large rooms which are now reserved for hospitality. With its typical Liberty style, the whole estate now expresses the fascination of great elegance together with the unmistakable atmosphere of an old country house.
