The cellar

Great terroirs and wine stories for the best sensory experience

We built it in time and with love. Our cellar encloses the world's most evocative and prestigious wines. Paths between terroir, vigneron projects and small producers, stories of lives bottled by the big names, thousands of labels selected to offer the best suitable sensory experience at every moment, from the aperitif to the tasting itinerary paired with restaurant dishes, to lead you to meditation after meal.

Signum Bar

A lounge bar facing a unique panorama

By the side of the pool, or looking at the spectacular sunsets, or under the stars, you can enjoy drinks and specialty cocktails. Raffaele, professional and passionate mixologist, creates small original masterpieces with herbs and fruits taken from the luxuriant garden, green heart of the Signum. Sips with pure Aeolian taste, which contain all the scents and colors of the surrounding nature. From those made from hazelnut and elderberry flowers to the spicy or citrusy ones, the bar's menu offers Mediterranean delights to sip, which can also become gourmet specialties combined with the taste routes offered by the chef Martina.

Martina CarusoChef
le and willing to put herself on the line. Growing up amidst the traditional aromas of her father Michele Caruso's cuisine, then a self-taught chef at Signum, and amidst the guests of the establishment looking for the best conditions to unplug from the world, at the age of 14 she felt that the future would be there among those cookers. He then decided to enrol in hotel management school and join his father in the kitchen during the summer season. So many years, so many experiences and so many awards followed one after the other for Martina Caruso, until the most recent recognition, which arrived on 23/11/2021, when the Signum Restaurant was awarded the innovative Michelin Green Star, for having shown particular attention to the theme of sustainability.
