Today, the wine estate is run by Gaetana Jacono, representing the sixth generation.
With the same love that tied her ancestors to the vines, along with marked entrepreneurial insight, Gaetana has devoted herself to the production of Sicilian DOC and IGT wines - a production that has earned great recognition, even on the international scene. The estate covers over 100 hectares and a large part of it, from 2001 to today, has been replanted with the area's top varieties and with international varieties. Here, the soil - locally known as "Milaro" - is characterized by a particular substrate of calcareous sandstone, inter¬leaved with packets of clay that allow the vines to produce high quality grapes.

Thanks to the nature of the place, the use of technologically advanced systems and the support of a century of experience, Valle dell'Acate is able to produce a range of prized, modern and radiant wines: the celebrated Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOC; the IGTs Moro, Frappato, Insolia, and Bidis, and the most recent, Tané, obtained by selecting the best bunches during the major harvest. This latter, the jewel of the production, is a new Nero d'Avola that embodies the estate's research into quality and its philosophy. This wine's important structure, its significant length, its deep red colour and its strong personality are a compendium of the territory's tradition and winemaking culture. Valle dell'Acate wines have shown themselves to be an authentic expression of the history and character of this land.
