Vino Lauria

With wine making in his family blood, Vito Lauria decided to attend the University of Udine in Friuli where he obtained a degree in Enology in 2003. After stepping off the campus he worked at a number wineries in northern Italy for a few years before returning to Sicily in 2005. Vito came home to open the old family winery in Alcamo, 30 miles west of Palermo.

  • His Solerte, is a result of “elegant” grapes grown in calcareous lands around Salemi, it is a very aromatic, floral wine but never cloying.
  • It is a natural wine, like Alacre, with which they share the fate of a curious denomination, perfectly in line with the playful tone of the image of Lauria wine.
  • From the fantasy of the names to the design of the labels, up to the smile of Vito’s face printed on top of the capsules.
