Valle dell’Acate is located in the historic Bidini domain, Contrada Bidini Soprano and Contrada Bidini Sottano in Acate. Giuseppe Jacono founded the cellar in the late 19th century, though the Jacono family had been active in vine growing and winemaking ever since Vittoria became Sicily’s epicentre for exporting wine to France during the 1800s. Since then, this familial vocation has been safeguarded and handed down over generations, driven by a shared desire to establish a name for the family’s wines on an international level.
Valle dell’Acate has continued this tradition, specializing in the cultivation of the mostprized and productive autochthonous vines, creating superior wines, including the crown jewel of Sicilia : the Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG.
