History

In Sicily, island with a long-standing wine growing tradition, there are the Tenute Orestiadi’s vineyard, borned in Gibellina by a  wine growers cooperative and the Orestiadi Foundation, one of the most important cultural institutions in the Mediterranean region, to promote the identity of Sicilian indigenous  grapes through the union of art and wine. Tenute Orestiadi is an ancient name that evokes distant myths and legends, that in fact amidst these lands found life thanks to Aeschylus, that more than twenty centuries ago wrote and brought to the stage the legend of ORESTES and of the ORESTIADI.
