The Azienda Agricola Poggio di Bortolone was founded by the Cosenza Family at the end of the eighteenth century, immediately after Sicily’s transition out of feudalism and the annexation by mainland Italy. Since then it has been passed down from father to son and today Pierluigi Cosenza, son of Ignatius, is the current owner and manager of the Poggio di Bortolone Estate. Whilst embracing the long established Family traditions, he is introducing fresh and innovative ideas to build on the successes of the past.
The land has been used for the cultivation of vines,, olives and wheat over many centuries and today the winery's ancient wooden press and traditonal oil mill are to be found amongst the relics of bygone days to remind visitors of the proud origins of the Estate. The old and now redundant limestone watermill beside the river Para Para is being lovingly restored to its former splendour and is yet another reminder of past traditions which continued right up until the end of World War II.
