SIQUELIA is a Sicilian company owned by Marzia Lo Vecchio, a dynamic entrepreneur with a bold and determined personality, founded on the passion for her land that has ancient wine-making traditions mixed with a sophisticated and reﬁned creative taste. The company has created a contemporary selection of “DOC Sicilia” wines with a superior quality, produced with reﬁned local varieties cultivated in the Belice Valley, in an area between the provinces of Agrigento, Trapani and Palermo, and viniﬁed the winery located in Gibellina, expressing the territory in its wide fusion between agriculture and art, and telling us the story of Sicilian ancient and modern wines.
The SIQUELIA wines are produced in the Belice Valley, currently one of the most renowned areas of Sicily for the production of quality wines, also where vines and wine have always been a constant presence. The terrains, mostly hills, have subtle slopes with medium texture soils containing clay, ideal for the growth of the white grape varieties. The soils that are mostly clay with a portion of limestone sediment, are ideal for red variety grapes and located at elevations that range from 300 to 500 m a.s.l., with favorable exposures to the south, south-e-ast and south-west. This area has ideal microclimatic conditions with intense sunlight, sea breezes and mild temperatu-res, perfect for viticulture and also has a good temperature excursion between day and night, a key factor for the natural ripening process of the grapes and for the concentration of aromatic substances in their skins, which are able to retain a perfect balance, remarkable elegance and unique aromas that tie the wines to their territory of origin.
