La Segreta takes its name from the woods which surround the Ulmo vineyard. A blend of 50% Nero d’Avola 25% Merlot 20% Syrah 5% Cabernet Franc, all the vines are knowledgeably cultivated in vineyards owned by Planeta. La Segreta is a versatile companion for daily drinking, suitable for many different occasions. It is a perfect approach to Sicilian wine with its excellent relationship between price and quality, guaranteed by Planeta’s careful input from vine to wine.
The history of Planeta starts at Ulmo. In the middle of the 1980’s they planted the first vines around the 16th century farmhouse which the family has always owned. The first winery was built in 1995 on the banks of the Lake Arancio and its nearby woods, in really delightful countryside. La Segreta is a footpath, going from the winery and leads to three different paths which border the vineyards.
Hidden within the Menfi hills and with 160 hectares of vineyards, the Dispensa estate is the heart of all their activities.
The family houses are within Baglio, surrounded by production, administrative and planning centres. The larger part of the company’s production takes place here, with two wineries. The Infernotto, inside the small winery, is the family caveau, with a collection of our favourite labels from all over the world and all the Planeta vintages.
