The public-private project connecting DOC Sicilia, University of Palermo and the Botanical Garden of the city, in the former “Vigna del Gallo”

History and research, past and future, public and private, this is the vision of the project that will connect DOC Sicily, the University of Palermo and the Botanical Garden of the city, one of the most important in Italy and not only, which will be the home of the native vines of the island - Grillo, Catarratto, Zibibbo, Nero d’Avola, Perricone and Frappato - to be planted and cultivated right in the heart of the city of Palermo. The vine varieties, two specimens for each single antique cultivar, will return to what was once the “Vigna del Gallo” of the Dukes of Archirafi, where the Botanical Garden has been standing since 1795. The vineyard will be cultivated using organic farming methods, following ancient traditions.
