With 150 years of history producing many indigenous grapes of Sicily the Di Giovanna family excels in depicting the true local essence of Grillo. Organically farmed to pay respect to the culture and hardy island spirit, the wine remains bright and fresh with lemon drop highlights and a clean mineral note. Rich when it hits the palate, a full viscous mouth feel conjures lime zest on a chalky structure. This local style has been perfected over time and we are sure through many family dinners.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
