Wine Channel TV with CVA Canicatti
Join Wine Channel TV, www.winechanneltv.tv, and wine lifestyle host Jessica Altieri for a special Sip From Sicily. segment. Jessica is joined by Giovanni Greco, president of the CVA Canicatti, a cooperative company of 200 small producers that cultivate over 200 hectares of vineyard. Jessica and Giovanni are in the Valle dei Templi where they produce a wine called Diodoros which is a small antique vineyard that has been restored.
In the heart of Agrigento’s countryside lie lands with an ancient viticultural history, where countless rows of vineyards draw scenic geometries in the landscape. These magic lands are the Lands of Nero d’Avola, and find their best expressions in the wines of CVA Canicattì.
Since 1969, over 480 vignerons united by their love for these lands have pooled their efforts in CVA Canicattì, a solid entrepreneurial project oriented towards the most demanding international markets. For over 40 years CVA Canicattì has been redefining the concept of viticultural quality, through important investments in technology and management. The work of every single vigneron is driven by a shared philosophy, and projected towards the valorisation of the agricultural and historical traits of one of Sicily’s most versed viticultural areas; the results of this passionate work can be found in every one of CVA Canicattì’s labels. The firm’s vignerons cultivate over 1000 ha of vineyards, each with unique pedoclimatic conditions and placed in a very prestigious historical and cultural context. The flag-bearer of this context is Diodoros: a wine which comes to life in a vineyard below the Temple of Juno, as part of a project for the valorisation of the Valley of the Temples’ historical vineyards, undertaken with the Authority for this archaeological site.
