The Martinez winery was founded in 1866 in Marsala, the western most tip of Sicily. The founder Carlo Martinez and his brother Francesco, found that the lively town of Marsala, which was at the time the heart of the island’s commerce and wine production, was the ideal place for their business venture. Over the years, the Martinez winery has remained true to its original product: Marsala, the most prestigious Italian liqueur wine.
