Mater Soli is engaged to develop the winegrowing of the territory of Trapani with the aim to let each territory gives a characteristic imprint to the wines that derive from it.
The wine grapes are selected from different vineyards between 45 hectares in different estates in western Sicily, particularly suited to the cultivation of vines: Alcamo, Castellammare del Golfo, Salemi, Segesta e Trapani. The diversity of the areas where our vines grow is the strong point that characterizes the quality of the product grown at different altitudes ranging from 160 to 600 m above sea level, contributing to create a beneficial and differentiated microclimate.

Between Alcamo, Castellammare del Golfo, Salemi, Segesta e trapani
Sicily is often compared to a continent rather than an island for its wide variety of different soil and climatic conditions of the territories.
Production of wine-growing around Trapani lands let us to have different ages of oenological grapes reason why we get a different characterization between the different products we make.
Vineyards located in between Alcamo and Castellammare del Golfo hills are characterised by fertile medium consistency soils where the nearby sea definitively has a strong influence on the grapes. Alcamo area, indeed, is the perfect location for the wine-growing ,suggested moreover by its own etymology that links its current name to the Arabian word “al-qamah”, that precisely means “fertile land”.
Moving further inland between Segesta,Vita e Salemi where cultivation achieves 400m and 600 m above sea level,
there are cool territories, enough resilient and young where is easily possible find skeleton (stones).
Underlying valley of Erice, in Trapani area, we can find territories that are tending to become loamy. These territories located in a windy and warm area are characterised time after time from a enjoyed ahead of the grape and here also, during summer time with irrigation rescues, is possible get phenolic maturation for an high quality level of the red grape. Soil and climate elements good for the grape growing and for a good management of the cultivation methods are pre-requisite to reach amazing target of production.
