Menfi, in the southeastern portion of Sicily, is the heart of Planeta and its operational base. Various types of soil are found here, but all are rich in lime and clay, ideal for the
international red grape varieties which are transformed into wine at La Dispensa winery - Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
