Valle dell’Acate’s Bidini manor and vineyards are nestled among the hills of Ragusa in the Dirillo valley of South Eastern Sicily. Today, sixth- generation descendant Gaetana Jacono runs the show, the first woman in the family to do so. She has infused the winemaking traditions of her ancestors with a modern eye towards business and entrepreneurialism to obtain the estate’s international recognition. The estate comprises over one hundred hectares of land, both for grapevines as well as Sicily’s famous blood oranges. Due to Jacono’s commitment to her ancestor’s land many of the vineyards have been replanted to the great traditional grapes of Sicily which are all farmed organically. Case Ibidini are the entry level wines of the estate and they are known for their easy drinking appeal, while still being serious wines with Sicilian character. Gaetana views the Casa Ibidini wines as “La Chiave di Casa Mia” or the key to my house, and an open bottle should provide a feeling of comfort as if you were a guest in her home in Sicily.
