Close your eyes for a moment while the wind and the sun are caressing you, breathe the air which is around you, full of scents: the one of the sea, the one of the vegetation and the other one of the soil.
You can’t make a mistake….. you are in Marsala, ”The Wine Land”. No other town can boast of a so various production of wines.
The English, keen and far-sighted, realized the potentiality of this place when they landed here in the 18th century and understood immediately that, from the local grape varieties, they could get something similar to the Spanish and Portuguese wines: that wine which later would have become famous all over the world with the name of “Marsala”.
In this so vined land, in 1997 our three families of growers decided to buy the brand “Cantine Vinci” and to start a new adventure which would have involved them in the trasformation of their grapes into wines with a distinct and costant quality.
Going from simply growers to wine-makers wasn’t so easy, but the experience, transmitted from father to son for generations, has been useful to let us understand what grapes were good to get the best quality wine,what were the best times for the grapes harvest, what were the soils to raise mainly the physiological and productive properties of several cultivars.
So, producing valuable grapes has become our basic rule to get excellent quality wines.
Little by little, the willingness to learn and the aim to produce great wines have been recognized and awarded. So today, Cantine Vinci can boast about important awards got for the production of wines that, once tasted, can’t be forgotten. _
