“Valentina Nicodemo produces wines allowing the purity of fruit to show through.”
The soils in Sicilia result from the slow contraction of the sea lying between the land masses of Africa and Eurasia. This contraction pushed up limestone seabed to form the mountains and hills of Sicilia, where one can find vines. Hills of Sicilia are based on Tertiary clayey flysch, Tertiary calcareous rocks, limestone, and sandstone. The combination of calcareous, volcanic rocks, and schist offer a broad range to perfectly grow vines.
A Passionate Lineage
Judeka is a winery created in 2007 by a group of friends. The project is led by Valentina Nicodemo, who has already made a strong reputation in the Sicilian wine world. In the modern cellar, built with the idea of reducing the environmental impact to zero, the organically grown grapes are transformed into wines that reflect and respect the characteristics of the individual grapes. The goal of this venture is to promote an eco friendly way of making wine, by promoting local grapes through higher quality wines.
