The bold, fruity flavour of this wine is all thanks to the black grape of Avola (not the Black Grape of the 90s, they were from Manchester), brought to Sicily by the Greeks when wine was drunk from Amphorae, not boxes.
Meet The Producer
Cantina Sociale San Antonio is a Sicilian wine cooperative, just outside Trapani, that only works with its members’ grapes. With virtually zero pesticide use, their agricultural practices are organic (although they’re not certified) and almost all their wine is boxed. You know you’re in the deep south when the nearest capital city is Tunis and the micro-climate here is perfect for growing grapes.
