Judeka was born in 2007 from the initiative of a group of young Sicilian entrepreneurs. Initially, the company was set up as a simple structure. It transitioned with the acquisition of the first farmlands, followed by the planting of vines and soon after construction of the winery. The company’s story is unique, starting from nothing but perseverance, passion, and research of young wine neophytes. They have worked on a rich but arduous land that is Sicily, to successfully fulfill their own dream “Judeka”. Irrefutably, any exposure to such a magical land inspires hope for all young Sicilians like Judeka’s young group of entrepreneurs.
Today it is imperative that we hand down a better world to our children. One of our main objectives is the respect for nature and the consumer. Consequently, we have decided to equip our winery with state-of-the-art technologies. So, by utilizing some basic principles of physics, we are able to process grapes with the utmost respect for their composition. The aforementioned technologies also allow us to bring out the grapes variety and territory features while minimizing, sometimes even eliminating, the use of chemicals.
