In Sicily the Greeks and the Phoenicians, especially on the west coast, started the cultivation of the grapes. Today from our winery our can look at that same coast: Marsala, a paradise surrounded by the Egadi Islands and the Stagnone natural reserve with Mothia island in the middle.
The surrounding area hosts an incredible variety of grapes for wine production, but what really characterizes the wines is the pedoclimatic variety and the different terroir that are present in the area.
We cannot simply speak about a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Merlot but only of a Sicilian Cabernet Sauvignon or a Sicilian Merlot. The same goes for our Kikè, the Sicilian Traminer.
The history that links this Sicilian winery to its territory is unique and with the knowledge that producing wine in this environmental contest is a responsibility but also it’s also reason for pride.
Fina’s vineyards are mainly located on the mill where the new winery and the structure for eno-turism were built. The vineyards are in good part made of autochthonous vineyards like the Grillo, the Nero d’Avola and the Perricone for which Bruno continues to search for original clones to give again to his wines the antique and “original” character.
Reason of pride are without doubt the winemaking department, that allows to work on the grapes preserving the integrity of the fruit, and the barrel chamber, with a total capacity of approximately 50000 litres between barriques and big barrels. In this area the temperature and humidity are kept constantly on ideal values.
The packaging department is now hosted in a dedicated area where the new bottling monobloc and the innovative microfiltration system, that allows the winery to proceed with bottling wines that haven’t had stressful fining and filtration processes.
The storage and bottle-fining department is in a controlled environment.
Fina winery has the ISO14001 certification. The production is certified biological IGT.
