Sicily is mainly known for its sun, beaches and Mount Etna, but also for its lovely wines – from producers like Donnafugata, Planeta, Firriato, Cos and the many top producers on Etna like Cornelissen, Terre Nere and Passopisciaro.
However, there is a world class producer – Azienda Agricola G. Milazzo - who is barely known outside of Italy, and for this reason you get a lot of exceptionally good wine from this winery.
This family winery is one of the largest organic wine producers in Sicily, and they produce a long range of both traditional and modern world class wines – red, white and sparkling wines.
Milazzo is a story of about five generations of family’s winegrowers. A legacy that is today passed down to Giuseppina Milazzo and her husband Saverio Lo Leggio, united in the commitment to give continuity to the virtuous evolution of the brand Milazzo.
The winery is located in a unique terroir. At 400 metres above sea level in the South of Sicily and on the hills to the north- east of Campobello di Licata in the province of Agrigento. This is where you find the 75 hectares – some 185 acres – of vineyards belonging to the Milazzo family. A grape growing area with a colorful mosaic of soils and the influence of a typical Mediterranean climate that make wines with such an identity and an original character.
This is really a producer that ought to be better recognised and known, so we want to give you an opportunity to familiarize yourselves better with their wines of which we have a large selection on offer in our shop.
