Casale Caira wines

The grapevine farming in the Comino Valley has very ancient origins and it has improved during the centuries. In 1860, thanks to the great agricultural agent of Atina, Pasquale Visocchi, several French varieties of grapevine were combined with the local ones that represent the basis of the enology of the entire valley.

The meticulous care for our vineyards shows the attentiveness, the passion and the love that we dedicate to this prolific and graceful land.

The activity, accomplished with self-denial, give us the opportunity to talk about our wines  that grow out of the choice of the best vineyards. The grapes are carefully selected and collected by hands in an uncontaminated environment that boasts of authentic pearls in his traditional products.

The connection with our roots brought us to dedicate our wines to historical personalities:

– Carmen Rossi (Maria Carmela Caira) was born in 1879 in the farmhouse where our company is located. She had been the model of several artists in Paris from 1892.

–  Eques, a kind of gladiator in the ancient Rome, it is represented in a majestic roman mosaic preserved in the Palazzo Ducale of Atina.
