Sicile & Sardaigne |
The Mediterranean islands of Italy, with their unique history and culture, offer a perfect example of an original wine heritage preserved and enhanced by winemakers who are both demanding and faithful to their tradition.
Sicily is particularly famous for the incomparable volcanic vineyards of Etna and its autochthonous Nerello, Carricante and Grecanico Dorato grapes, while Pantelleria, the small volcanic island next door, magnifies its Zibibbo grape. Sardinia, with a handful of emblematic winemakers, highlights its many traditional grape varieties that are too often forgotten. The terroirs and the winegrowers invite you to take a journey through the Mediterranean world and bear witness to the singularly lively and exciting character of Italian winegrowing.
