Firriato Winery is a family-owned business, located in Trapani. It encompasses six estates throughout the most magical parts of the wine regions of Sicily, including the island of Favignana.
Founded in 1984, Firriato boasts a kaleidoscopic production of 4.5 million bottles per year. Approximately 380 hectares of vineyards are manicured with passion under certified organic farming techniques. These vineyards are distributed in three heterogeneous and complex soils: the Agro of Trapani, the Etna volcano, and the surprising viticulture of the sea environment surrounding the island of Favignana.
Firriato is a pioneer in Precision Viticulture, a technique that emphasizes the potential of every single plant, and the range of expression that can be revealed with respect to distinct pedoclimatic contexts. Dedication and zeal applied to oenological practices and eco-sustainability are an integral part of the philosophy of Firriato.
Firriato makes a wonderful selection of wines including Grillo, Catarrato, Inzolia, Frappato, Nero d’Avola, Zibibbo and unique blends from Favinia island.
Wine selection also includes a Vegan certified range.
