Bosco Falconeria is located 40 miles west of Palermo, Sicily in the hills overlooking the Gulf of Castellammare and has belonged to the Simeti family since 1933. Antonio Simeti and his wife, Mary Taylor Simeti, took over the property in the 1980’s, diversifying the land and increasing the property to over 35 acres. For 2 years now, their daughter Natalia has taken over, and has thrown all her passion in to working the land. She makes the wine alongside her father. The winery is located 250 meteres above sea level and the soil is very fertile, with a lot of limestone. Bosco Falconeria also bottles their own extra virgin olive oil and sells their fruit and vegetables to speciality stores in Palermo. The farm obtained official organic certification in 1989.
