The Firriato company is one of the largest wine producers in Sicily, currently owning 6 wineries located in various parts of Sicily with very different terroir, which allows the company to produce very different wines. The philosophy has since the start of the company in the 1980’ies been to produce high quality wines, mainly based on indigenous grapes. The innovative Firriato wines have significantly supported the fame and global acceptance of Sicilian wines and made Firriato one of the most famous Sicilian wine producers.
Cataratto and Grillo, native white grape vine varieties, have contributed to Sicily’s oenological success, enabling them to enter onto the world stage for quality winemaking. The name derives from 18th century France, but this is a wholly Sicilian wine coming from the fertile land of the Trapani countryside. Saint Germain is grown on the Borgo Guarini Estate in a unique agricultural environment and, through Firriato’s innovative farming style, fully conveys all the ampelographic complexity of this stretch of Trapani countryside. Freshness and minerality seamlessly unite thanks to the sparkling process using the Charmat method, which enhances the interweaving aromatic and fragrant properties of the two varietals, giving a vivacious and extremely drinkable wine.
