Producer Profile

Cantina Marilina

Angelo Paternò's journey from winemaker to vineyard owner reflects a profound dedication to Sicilian viticulture. With 25 years of experience at esteemed Sicilian wineries, he recognized the potential of a 60-hectare hill in southeastern Sicily, near Pachino, as an exceptional viticultural site. Entrusting the operation to his daughters, Marilina and Federica, Angelo instilled his passion for organic farming and minimal intervention winemaking practices. Inspired by local natural winemaking guru Frank Cornelissen, they prioritize biodiversity, dedicating nearly half of the land to polyculture. Across the remaining hectares, an array of grape varieties including Nero d’Avola, Grecanico, Muscat Blanc, and Chardonnay flourish. In the cellar.
