Florio Vino - Cantine Florio
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.
The sun-drenched Grillo vineyards for this white wine are located on a coastal strip of the municipality of Marsala on western Sicily. The vines grow in medium-textured, dry and very sandy red soil in a climate with very hot, dry summers, marked by strong winds. Fermentation took place in cement tanks before the was allowed to mature for some months on the fine lees in these tanks.
