THE LAND OF WINES
The western area of Sicily is historically known for the production of Marsala.
The famous fortified wine that at the end of 1700 was much appreciated in major European cities.
A story that was born from the intuition of the English merchant John Woodhouse,
after tasting the wines of Marsala, including the first who could compete in international markets with the famous labels
of Jerez and Porto.
In fact the origins of viticulture in this area of Sicily are much older.
The area of Mozia, Erice and Marsala as far back VIII / VII century. C. was colonized by the Phoenicians
traders who followed the Carthaginians, the Greeks and the Romans. A millenary tradition that has preserved to this day a
rich heritage of indigenous
grapes, still looking for a full appreciation.
