Welcome to Firriato.
The passion of a young entrepreneur in love with his land gave life to the FIRRIATO brand in the mid-1980's, in the heart of the marvelous scenario of the Trapani countryside, which bears the signs of thousands of years of agricultural and winemaking culture while preserving a vibrant and wild nature. In just a few years Salvatore Di Gaetano and Vinzia Novara, his wife and companion in this marvelous adventure, succeeded in leading the firm to international fame and acknowledgement.
A Story of Passion.
Quality and Passion. These words are put into every single aspect of our commitment to rediscover autochthonous grape varieties and reinterpret international varieties. These are the guiding principles for our entire world starting from our land, cultivated with love and skill, through the wine cellar, to distribution and relations with partners and clients. Our goal is to produce great Sicilian wines with an international scope.
Our land is our source of inspiration. Firriato's estates, the source of the fine grapes used to make our wines, cover three different geographical areas of that unique "continent" called Sicily. Each expresses with strength the unique features of extremely diverse yet equally extraordinary lands: the Trapani countryside, Mount Etna and Favignana. A journey through all the different shades of Sicily's nature, made of energy, charm, colors, traditions and tastes.
The utmost rigor is used in our vineyards: only the best grapes reach the cellar where the vinification is carried out channeling the know-how gained over the years in research and increasingly advanced and sophisticated technologies. Each step is guided by the attention and care that we put into every aspect of the process so that each Firriato wine can afford top quality.
Our Wine. In Sicily and the World.
The wide and rich collection of Firriato wines comprises top-class autochthonous grape varieties, blends with international varieties and innovative assemblages with grape varieties that are rarely used and it expresses Firriato's unique winemaking vision, namely producing great wines with an exciting personality that fully expresses the land and embodies Sicilian elegance without ever exaggerating and a marked international vocation.
