It was a great pleasure to find out about this reality on August 9th when visiting Judeka's agricultural company which produce excellent wines. The eco friendly company, located in Contrada San Mauro in Caltagirone, presents a synthesis of ecology, culture, tradition and quality evident in the activities. Judeka was established in 2007 and covers 45 hectares of vineyard cultivated land, predominantly Nero d'Avola and Frappato, with an annual production of 600 thousand bottles.
The environmental aspect is significant, in fact, investments have been made to equip the company with: a 130 kw photovoltaic plant able to meet the energy needs, a solar thermal system for the production of hot water and a phytosanitary plant for the treatment of industrial and civil wastewater. In addition, spring water is treated and made drinkable through the osmosis plant. The company besides being environmentally friendly is eco friendly, it is committed to eliminate and reduce chemical components.
Of particular interest is the collection of wine-ceramic bottles. A special series of ceramic bottles of Caltagirone, Borgognotta format, finely worked according to the ancient tradition of local ceramics. The result is a wonderful gift that blends together the art of ceramic processing and the wine production of this land.
The oenological activity is complemented by the refreshments in the stylish local Judeka Wine Bar located in Caltagirone Viale Principessa Maria Jose, 97 where you can enjoy the whole wine production of Judeka accompanied by cheese-based dishes ("Vastedda della valle del Belìce DOP, "Ragusano DOP”) and salami (Salame di Sant'Angelo di Brolo IGP) carefully selected.
In addition, the wine bar offers a wide range of wines from other Italian regions for those wishing to explore the Italian wine geography.
The tasting has seen the extra-dry sparkling wine from zibibbo, Frabianco, an enjoyable white wine and the Cerasuolo di Vittoria, red wine DOCG, made up of 60% by Nero d'Avola and 40% by Frappato, well-structured and intriguing.
Thank you to Cesare Nicodemo who took care of the hospitality, the company site vist and the elegant tasting.
