Tanca Nica - Kaffefi S.r.l. -Pantelleria
Tanca Nica was born thanks to Nicoletta Pecorelli, originally from Sardinia, and Francesco Ferreri, born and raised in Pantelleria. Francesco had the woodworm of wine from an early age, inspired by his grandfather and supporting him while he was making his grapes. Francesco already knew he wanted to be a winemaker at 14, and he left Pantelleria for Conegliano (Veneto) to study at the renowned agricultural and oenological boarding school. After years of research and work in wineries and oenology labs, he landed a job at the Seresin biodynamic estate in New Zealand. And it is there, on the other side of the world, that she felt the call of his roots. The magnetic force of Pantelleria brought him back to his grandfather's vineyards in 2016. Francesco returned with a mission: to revive old customs, safeguarding devalued and lost traditions and savoir-faire. Nicoletta and Francesco currently produce 3 hectares divided into 10 plots on 6 districts. One hectare is owned by Francesco's family, while the other two are rented by locals. The grapes used are Zibibbo and Pignatello.
