Located in the Municipality of Niscemi, in the Province of Caltanisetta, the Pisciotto reserve has extensive vineyards and monumental cork oak trees. Immersed in this paradise of colours and aromas, the Wine Relais I Feudi del Pisciotto is the ideal place to stay if you want to explore south-eastern Sicily. Caltagirone, well known for its exquisite pottery ware, is just 25 minutes away; the Roman Villa del Casale and Piazza Armerina are 30 minutes away. Noto and Siracusa's Greek theatres are not far, and golfers will learn to appreciate the two Donnafugata courses. The closest beach is Scoglitti, about 10 km from the Wine Relais, but the beaches of Licata and Falconara Sicula are not much further. Comiso Airport (35 minutes) and Catania Airport (approx. 60 minutes) are the two closest airports.
The unique atmosphere and pleasant style of the Wine Relais I Feudi del Pisciotto is a result of the perfect balance between its modern and traditional features. The old 18th century building, originally the largest winery in Sicily, has been artfully reconverted (based on Brandi's approach to restoration) and elegantly furnished. It has 10 rooms and suites, spacious communal areas, a terrace with beautiful views of the vineyards and, of course, a tasting room.
Categorised as Classic, Superior, Junior Suite and Prestige, the rooms and suites of the Relais are named after the most famous Italian fashion designers (Versace, Blumarine, Missoni, Alberta Ferretti, Ferrè etc.), who all collaborated in the creation of our labels. The rooms are set out over two floors, and each one is unique as they are located in the oldest part of the building and preserve many of the original building’s exquisite features – such as the ancient Greek and Roman wine-making tanks. All rooms have satellite TV, mini bar, air conditioning and heating and Wi-Fi.

For breakfast guests can choose from a well-assorted buffet – room service is available on request. Feudi del Pisciotto was the first Sicilian winery to become part of the DCC Group (which includes Castellare di Castellina and Rocca di Frassinello in Tuscany and Gurra di Mare also in Sicily). Guests can savour its outstanding wines in the tasting room, located in the old building, with its glass floor through which you can admire the beautiful oak barrels. The 150-acre vineyard produces wines that have won prizes awarded by international specialized magazines and wine guides and given the highest ratings; their labels have been designed by the best Italian designers, such as Versace and Missoni. The Wine Relais I Feudi del Pisciotto does not have a restaurant of its own, but if you enjoy good food it recommends the Cibus in Niscemi; Coria in Caltagirone; La Madia in Licata; Il Duomo and La Locanda di Don Serafino in Ragusa Ibla.
The à la carte restaurant Il Palmento di Feudi was recently opened and is led by the Sicilian chef Massimo Blanco. With his international experience, he manages to delight every palate with flavors of the Sicilian and Mediterranean cuisine.
