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.

Chardonnay: Originally from Burugundy, Chardonnay is the most present international vine variety in Sicily, thanks to the perfect microclimate of the island and its clay soil.

The fruit is characterized by medium-sized grapes with tender yellow peel.
