The Taif is produced from the zibbibo grape also known as "Moscato d'Alessandria". Historically, zibibbo has been used to produce sweet wines, yet its grapes fit perfectly to the production of delicious dry white wines, an example is the round, mineral and fresh Taif wine.

The Cantine Fina follows a tradition of winemaking that started thousands of years ago when the Greek and Phoenician settlements on the Sicilian west coast started the cultivation of grapes. The winery is located on a ridge on the west coast near the Mediterrenean Sea. The vineyards benefit from the temperature variations near the sea with cool breezes supporting the acidity of the wines.
