Only from passion can something special be born.
The same passion that I inherited from my grandfather Gaetano during the long summers in Sicily, when, already as a child, I learned about the times of the vineyard.
Studies and travels abroad have increased my desire not to be trapped in the stereotypes of a classic agricultural culture, reinforcing my desire to innovate, but starting from the origins, from "how we used to do it".
My dream of freedom and beauty is thus realized through an intelligent viticulture that leads to acting not for interests far from the needs of the vineyard.
In practice no wine "built" according to the needs of industry, but a natural wine that restores dignity to its homeland and to the whole of Sicily.
This is what I would like to show you when you come to know Tenuta San Giaime.

I have booked wine testing for my boyfriend 's birthday. After meeting host and owner of winery I knew that it was a great choice. we both felt welcomed and were treated more like a friends rather than another customer. Wine here was from another level so we ended up buying a box of them, absolutely delicious! I would definitely recommend it to everyone who would like to get to know how small family oriented winery works and be treated with a special and very kind way. Once we buy our dream home in Sicily we will definitely come back. Wait for our online order to London !! thank you so much for being do amazing !

Abbiamo vissuto un'esperienza unica. Lo staff molto attento alle esigenze, la guida Giulia molto attenta e simpatica. Siamo rimasti molto contenti e ritorneremo sicuramente. Ci siamo sentiti in famiglia. Se potessi metterei più di 5 stelline

What a great experience at the wine yard! Salvatore’s family have great passion for wine making and organic farming. It was a great insight into winemaking and the great work that goes into producing it in organic way. We had a lovely conversation about organic growing and why its important for them. The wine is brilliant! Place is very beautiful and it was a great tour of the property. We were very interested in solar greenhouses so they treated us to an extensive tour of them and even some fresh vegetables! Hope to comeback some day - highly recommend to wine lovers and anyone interested in sustainable farming!

While it is difficult to get to without a car, this was a great experience and definitely worth the effort. Signore Cicco, Giulia, and Niccolo were great hosts, very fun to talk to.

It was a real pleasure, era un piacere! :) The place they’ve entered on Google Maps took us to Gangi, but if you enter the name of their winery La Tenuta San Giame, you’ll get there nicely. We met with Giulia and the owner Salvatore and he speaks a little English and told us the story of his place and lands, which used to belong to his father. It was very interesting to learn about grapes and wine making, and afterwards we got to taste 3 of their wines and some local products, it was really lovely. We bought 5 bottles and 6th was a gift from Salvatore, which we very much appreciated. They are planning to make the place bigger to accommodate more people and even offer B&B in the middle of grape fields, which would be a great experience! Grazie mille e in bocca al lupo a voi, forse in futuro torniamo! 🤗
