In 1968, an earthquake wiped out many towns in the Belìce Valley of western Sicily. Thirty years later, in an attempt to revive the economy and introduce modern viticulture, a group of grape growers banded together to create a co-op called Cantine Ermes (producer of Libero). Today, they number over 2,300 members, all farming their land organically and contributing to award-winning wines that represent the island’s native varieties as well as some international. The winery headquarters make use of Sicily’s ample sunshine with an entirely solar-powered facility, and they use water sustainably. This co-op proves the power of the collective to do good—good wines, good farming, and good all-around stewardship of their community.
