The history of Sicilian wine is long and fascinating, bringing together collaborations between diverse groups of people who have shared a passion for the grape.
Some ancient archeological findings testify that Sicily was one of the first Italian regions to practice the art of enology.
In the past we produced a large amount of wine but it was mainly used to add body to more sophisticated wines produced elsewhere. Until the 1950s our vineyards exported Sicilian wine to France and Northern Italy to increase the alcoholic content and balance the color of their most renowned wines.
More recently, we have witnessed a growing interest from enthusiasts who are strongly committed to innovating, transforming and improving the quality of our vineyards. These people have produced new vines, experimented with new techniques and modernized the plants. The sun, the land, the hills and the sea breeze have done the rest, providing an extraordinary variety of Sicilian wines which have taken a leading role on the international stage.
