Firriato is based in the province of Trapani, one of the most magical parts of the wine region of Sicily, where centuries of vine growing have given this area a natural ability to produce wines with a strong sense of identity.
It was the start of the eighties when Salvatore Di Gaetano, a businessman with a passion for his homeland, saw the right elements in this picture-postcard landscape to bear the fruit of his passion: high-quality wine. Firriato is the crowning achievement of this dream, a company that in three decades has become one of the biggest production companies in Sicily. Right from the onset, Salvatore Di Gaetano believed in the oenological potential of traditional vines. Nero d’Avola, Perricone and Nerello Mascalese, as well as Zibibbo, Grillo and Catarratto - with Firriato they have all become wines that have crossed the oceans, entering into the heart of enthusiastic wine lovers.
Harvest after harvest, Firriato has implemented a modern wine making plan based on viticulture that enhances the varietal features of every vine planted. Firriato wines are recognizable right from the first sip, have been awarded accolades from critics and are enjoyed by wine lovers all over the world.
Firriato’s strength lies in the consistent choices it has made. Especially those that focus on nature, biodiversity, protecting the landscape and innovation – all of their vineyards are certified organic.
Today the strong affection for Sicily has been given new strength thanks to the arrival of Irene, Salvatore and Vinzia’s daughter, and her husband, Federico Lombardo di Monte Iato, who are taking the family dream forward with passion.
