Founded in 2007 by winemaker Silvia Maestrelli, her husband, Roberto Silva, and winemaker Federico Curtaz, the Fessina Estate is located in the small village of Rovittello, about eight miles east of Randazzo. Given its distinct location, the terroir of the vineyards is composed of centuries-old lava deposits that yield strikingly individual wines in a class by themselves. In addition to the main estate, the winery includes two additional vineyards — a tribute to Sicily’s incredibly fertile, bountiful landscape. Tenuta di Fessina is a testament to the beauty and splendour of its surroundings: the magnificence of the region is reflected in the wines.
I’ve found a little video that shows the estate in more detail. On arrival the old buildings do give an impression of dilapidation; this is slightly intentional but as our guide explained; they would rather spend the cash in the vineyard and in producing wine. (If you read Italian, Tenuta di Fessina are also on facebook)
