+ Add a winery image

Planeta is a wine produced by the family of the same name in various locations all over Sicily, Italy. The main estate in Sambuca di Sicilia has been in the family since the 1600s. In the 1980s, Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta established the wine brand. The wines are produced around the original family estate in Sambuca di Sicilia, as well as in Menfi (where they produce the La Segreta label of bianco and rosso), Vittoria (where they produce Cerrasuola), Noto (for Santa Cecilia) and most recently, Etna. They use a combination of indigenous Sicilian as well as international grape varieties in their wines.

  • My guess is that they're taking a page from Planeta and cleaning up! I'd think that the traditional wines were pretty full of contaminants, just as they were in most places.If there were some way to control brett, it could add some interesting notes. But unfortunately, wine isn't handled like milk, with temp control from source to destination.On... Read More

    Forum post in the topic A purposely 'bretted' wine?


  • I know of a number of people in the craft beer world who are purposely introducing brettanomyces into the brewing equation to see how interesting things can get. 'Wild yeast' beers are barely (not) controllable but they are rapidly becoming cult items. Case in point, this quote about a Sierra Nevada brew, taken from Good Morning America: Sierra ... Read More
