Cantina Cellaro – Sicily – ITALY

Sicily is among the Italian regions most suited to the cultivation of grapes suitable for winemaking. Cellaro Winery is located in the heart of Sicilian wine history. Here the healthiest grapes grow, according to an ancient tradition that is handed down from father to son. It was the Emir Zabut who discovered it in the distant ninth century after Christ. He arrived in Sicily, which he fell deeply in love with for its pleasant climate, the gentle green hills. Here, he decided to found a town, which today is called in his honor Sambuca. In the same place he developed the cultivation of vineyards around the suggestive Orange Lake which, thanks to its pure water, guarantees adequate irrigation throughout the year. Today, after more than a thousand years, this winemaking tradition is still alive and well practiced. The Cellaro Winery, to date, represents the union of 600 families who have been involved in viticulture for generations for a total of 1,000 hectares of extensive vineyards.These winemakers are constantly followed by the supervising oenologists Vito Giovinco and Giuseppe Burruano. The main goal is to preserve the excellent quality of the grapes from the land to the bottle.All this is possible thanks to the millennial experience of the producers, combined with the technical knowledge of our experts and the huge investments in terms of machinery for fermenting the grapes. The best grapes of Sicily are then vinified in the cellar: Nero D’Avola, Nerello Mascalese, Grillo, Syrah, Chardonnay. The sun, the sea, the fertile land and the total absence of industries guarantee a perfect terroir.
