I was very pleased to have met and photographed Count Paolo Marzotto at his beautiful Sicilian vineyard ‘Baglio di Pianetto’ in the picturesque hills of Santa Cristina Gela south of Palermo.
Very much at ease in front of the camera, I found Paolo to be very charismatic, magnetic and energetic, his enthusiasm and optimism, contagious.
Paolo’s passion and love for wine and Sicily combined with his vision and dream, have created and developed this beautiful 88 hectare vineyard, producing some 40,000 – 50,000 cases of wine annually.
