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.

Winemaker's Notes

The making of the dry Zibibbo wine started not long ago and only by a few; Vito Lauria is part of that few. These elegant grapes make a wine that is very aromatic, floral but never cloying. Is s a natural wine, and perfectly in line with the playful tone of the image of Lauria. From the fantasy of the names to the design of the labels, up to the smile of Vito’s face which is printed on top of the capsules, this is quintessentially the Vino Lauria Zibibbo.
