Gaetana Jacono, the sixth generation at the helm of the historic winery Valle dell’Acate, welcomes guests into an old sicilian baglio where tasting becomes a sensory experience that blends flavor with the quality of the place

Nunc est bibendum. In northeastern Sicily, near Ragusa, The House of Pairings/Casa degli Abbinamenti is the result of the energy of Gaetana Jacono, a wine entrepreneur and ambassador of taste Made in Sicily. Together with the ‘flying chef’ – as he calls himself – Davide Di Corato, our hostess proposes a new experience of hospitality and taste, starting with the famous vintages of Valle dell’Acate. Seven luminous, aromatic wines, like the land that produces them, seven parcels with different cultivars: Cerasuolo di Vittoria, Vittoria Frappato and Insolia, Sicilia Zagra di Grillo, Moro di Nero d’Avola, Riusciano di Syrah, Bidis di Chardonnay and Tanè.
The mission of the ‘house’ is to blend a new experience of pairings, refined harmonies of flavors, aromas and colore, with other things that stimulate delightful sensory effects. Pasta, delicious sauces, refined fish recipes based on ancient local recipes reinterpreted by the lady of the house (as well as desserts and seasonal vegetables), offer an opportunity to get to knowthis part of the Sicilian territory.
