Located in the center of Sicily, in the territories of Caltanissetta and San Cataldo, Tenute Lombardo is the estate of Giuseppe Lombardo and his sons Salvatore, Gianfranco and Roberto. The Lombardo family has always believed in the potential of Sicilian indigenous grape varieties, including Catarratto (the most common white grape variety in Italy) and Nero d'Avola (the most common red grape variety in Sicily). In recent years, other native whites have been introduced into the farm: Grillo and Muscat.
