In 1832 Vincenzo Florio acquired land on a strip of beach situated between the wineries of Ingham and Woodhouse outside the town of Marsala in Sicily. He built the Florio winery in a typical Anglo-Saxon style of the times complete with lancet arches and floors of pressed tuff powder. The building inspired great admiration and improved the industrial nature of the city of Marsala helping it develop into one of Sicily’s richest business centers.
