In the heart of the province of Trapani, there is a place where myth, history and wine have lived together for millennia: Erice, a small and ancient town situated on the top of a mountain.
The Fazio family has been dedicated to the art of winemaking in the Erice area for four generations, which is why the Fazio family and Giacomo Ansaldi, partner and winemaker, promoted the recognition of the DOC Erice symbol of the passion that binds the company to the territory.
The vineyards of the company grow on the hill slopes of Mount Erice, between 250 and 700 meters above sea level. The presence of mountains and the proximity of the sea, the cool and windy climate, the peculiar orographic conformation, the geological nature of the land and the considerable temperature ranges, give these places unique characteristics. These slopes are suitable for producing rich and concentrated black grapes that generate soft and elegant wines, and white grapes with good acidity, characterized by aromas of white flowers and citrus notes that give the wines elegance and delicacy.
The love for its territory, for its fruits and its traditions is the engine that animates the Fazio family. Every visit to the Company turns into a unique, sensorial and cultural experience. This inspired our motto: "History in a glass", that is: "the past, the present and the future of our territory all in one glass".
The Company is reachable from the motorway exit "Fulgatore" on the A29 Palermo – Marsala. It is located in the center of an area rich in archaeological finds: 15 minutes from Erice Vetta and its Castle of Venus, 10 minutes from Segesta and its Greek temples and only 30 minutes from the famous island of Motya and from the salt pans of Ettore Infersa, where you can enjoy suggestive sunsets on expanses of pink salt, watching the sun set fire to the Egadi islands.
