Tenute Mannino Di Plachi is located in Viagrande, a town surrounded by beautiful, green hills rich in lush vineyards in the Catania province of Sicily. The farm dates back to the 1800s with a long history of winemaking. Today, the modern facility offers a wide range of services like agritourism, ecotourism, food, catering, and obviously wine. Tenute Mannino Di Plachi is managed by Giuseppe Mannino, president of the Consorzio Tutela Vini Etna Doc. Contributing writer Francesca Mignosa spoke with Giuseppe about his winery.
