The main seat of the estate is a splendid structure from the nineteenth century in Marsale. This historical and prestigious building is situated in front of the seaside, on the western coastline of Sicily and facing the island of Egadi. Its design is in accordance with the architectural style of the traditional “baglio trapanese” which is composed by two bodies of factory that are arranged around a large quadrangular courtyard.

The baglio is the authentic and ancient architectural expression of the Sicilian rural economy. The positioning on the sea, ideal for supply and for the commerce of products, had the disadvantage of making the business activities extremely vulnerable to incoming attacks from the sea. In order to protect their own properties and interests from the adventurers who went around for the Mediterranean, the peasants and the traders sheltered their activities in fortified buildings: the baglio.

The baglio of Ciello is the synthesis of tradition and innovation: close to the ageing area with the barriques, the protagonists of the ancient and irreplaceable technique of improving of the wine, one can find the most modern machinery for the vinification and a fast and versatile bottling line.
