The winery extends over an area of a little over 7 hectares, 2.5 of which are vineyards, the rest are made up of olive, oak and chestnut trees.The vineyards situated at Faro Superiore and Curcuraci, rise on a steep hill overlooking the Strait of Messina at 250-300 metres above sea level.

The fermentation for red wine “Faro D.o.c. Bonavita” begins by steeping the grapes with indigenous yeast, long maceration on the skins for about 20 days in steel vats, and then age the wine in one large conical oak barrel for about 20 months.
