Passion, family, tradition
Le Sette Aje is a story of passion, family and tradition that spans one hundred years and takes place in sunny Sicily, along the Belìce river.
An ancient story in the heart and recent in fact.
Back in 1916 our great grandfather Leonardo bought the first lands from a wealthy landowner best known as “Canaddunaschi” (literally, “dog with two nostrils” to refer to a person with a particular flair for business).
Since then, we have had three generations of passionate farmers and wine and oil artisans with our grandfather Giovanni and our father Leonardo.
The fourth generation made the passion evolve into a more concrete shape: Rosalia, Cristina, Agata and Gabriella decide to found Le Sette Aje company, managing the business with the harmony that only a family company ensures.
