The Colomba Bianca winery was founded in 1970. During the last 10 years it has become one of the biggest wine growing co-operative in Sicily operating 6 wineries and count on circa 2480 partners and extends along 7500 hectars of vineyards between the provinces of Trapani, Palermo, Agrigento, Caltanissetta and Ragusa. The vineyards can be found in areas which benefit of a vast pedoclimatic diversity, from the low coastal areas up to an altitude of 600 metres above sea level.
The Grillo vines for Resilience Grillo white wine grow in the vineyards of the Colomba Bianca cooperative in Mazara del Vallo in southwestern Sicily at altitudes from 100 to 600 m.
The grapes were hand-picked and carefully sorted. The grapes were handled at the cooperative’s Val di Mazara winery, where they were processed quickly to maintain the unique characteristics of these grapes, respecting their territorial origin. The grapes were pressed softly to maximize the scents and natural acidity of the must. Following the static separation of the skins the must was cooled to 12°C for 24 hours in order to clarify the must before the fermentation, which took place in stainless steel tanks. Refinement of the wine took place in the tanks for 5 months with frequent batonnage to maintain the noble lees in suspension and limit the use of sulphites.
