The Di Lorenzo Family
In Sicily our partners are the Di Lorenzo Family who own the magnificent disisa estate set in a majestic landscape in the hills of north western Sicily.
The estate has been in the hands of the Di Lorenzo family for well over a hundred years and is today run by Renato Di Lorenzo and his wife Maria Paola, ably assisted by their two children Mario and Laura.
The word Disisa is derived from the Arabic for “splendid” and it is obvious why the land was so named! The farmhouse itself is built around a beautiful, traditional courtyard and has a terrace with a stunning view rolling for mile after mile into the very heart of the island’s rugged mountains. It is with this view that we enjoy Maria Paola’s traditional Italian meals in the evenings, usually with a glass or two of Disisa wine!
Dating back to Norman times, this ancient farm covers 400 hectares of olive groves, vineyards for the production of wine and wine vinegars, along with orchards and herb gardens to grow the many different ingredients such as lemons, mint and basil used in our infused olive oils.
It is a magical place with a warm and welcoming family who create truly superb olive oil and wine vinegar.
