Description

Located near the village of Sambuca di Sicilia, on the shores of Lake Arancio, Ulmo was the first Planeta winery, opened in 1995. An ancient 16th-century baglio, or stone farmhouse, overlooks the estate which is also home to the Iter Vitis open-air museum dedicated to the history of the Sicilian viticulture. The La Segreta nature trail offers three possible walks through the vineyards, allowing visitors to discover wild spots and unique landscapes.

Planeta, a leading winemaker for both Italian and international markets, has a strong presence in Sicily, with 370 hectares of proprietary vineyards and five wineries located in different areas of the region.

Here at Ulmo in 1995 Planeta built their first winery,in the most delightful countryside and just a few metres farmhouse dating from 1500 which has always been owned by the Planeta family. It used to be a halting place for travellers between Sciacca and Palermo. Today the Planeta farmhouse is a meeting place for those who are passionate about and who work with wine, but also for anyone who wants to have a unique experience while getting to know the territory and its history.
