I am very excited to announce that my new labels are ready!
It happens sometimes that a wine that has had a DOC label for many years suddenly loses its appellation. Here I explain the bureaucratic mysteries of Italian DOCs, and why producers must re-classify their wines in order to be able to sell them.
I am quite sure that nobody outside Sicily knew anything about Grillo only 10 years ago.
This is also still the case for many indigenous Sicilian grapes, but the one surprising thing is that Grillo's popularity has broadened from being totally obscure to becoming one of the most appreciated varieties in a very limited amount of time.
A new year, trying to take stock of the past ten years of my life
From a marketing point of view, packaging plays a fundamental role in the perceived value of wine, and marketers spend a lot of efforts in the design of bottles and labels
Catarratto [KAH-tahr-RAT-toh] is one of the classic traditional white grape varieties of Sicily, and is considered to be one of the most antique.
Nero d’Avola is one of the traditional red wine grapes of Sicily, and is rapidly becoming quite a popular variety all over the world.
Every day we producers tell you about our wines, we share the photos of vineyards and tastings, we try to communicate our experiences and the successes we have achieved in the wine business. Very often we try to draw your attention on the problems that affect our life, and on the efforts we make to produce our wines as best as we can. Less often we speak about you: you that buy our wines, you consumers, winelovers, customers, you who make our wines part of your lives.
You who make our lives richer, satisfying and more intense.
Thank you for giving us so much attention, and so much love everyday.
