Winery: Judeka was founded in 2007 by a group of passionate Sicilian entrepreneurs, led by Valentina Nicodemo. Beginning with nothing but land, they have quickly developed into a stunning winery captained by a group of passionate winemakers. With an awareness of the impact winemaking takes on the environment, the winery is driven to be as carbon neutral as possible. A photovoltaic system provides all of their electricity needs, an artificial wetland system has been introduced to treat wastewater, which is then returned to the vines in an irrigation system.
Philosophy: “Respect for nature and the consumer.”
Winemaking: Strict organic methods are followed in the vineyard and winery.
Tasting Notes: Brilliant ruby red in colour with aromas of black cherry, strawberry, clove, and the slightest wisp of menthol. Flavours mirror the aromas; a sublime combo of soft tannins and bright acidity backs black cherry, black currant and a hint of rosemary. Blackberry and warmly spiced clove notes linger on the savoury finish. Friendly and engaging, fantastic on its own or with a wide variety of dishes.
