Catarratto: Sicilian native white berry wine, it is mostly present in the area near Trapani. Its origin is lost in the mists of time and its one of the oldest vine varieties present in Sicily. Its name means “abundance” because of the large quantity of grapes the vine produces.

Inzolia:Of Norman origin, Inzolia is among the oldest white berry vines growing in Sicily. It is heavily present in the western part of island, especially in the area near Marsala and Trapani, where the growth of the grapes is favored by the microclimate and the thermal excursion.
