Nicosia

It was back in 1898 when Francesco Nicosia, the current owner's great-grandfather, decided to open the first wine shop in Trecastagni on the eastern slope of Mount Etna. These were golden times for Etna wine, which even then was known and appreciated throughout Europe for its mineral strength and 'volcanic' personality.

The decisive entrepreneurial turning point came at the end of the 20th century, thanks to the tenacity and innovative spirit of the current owner, Carmelo Nicosia, who, by investing in the expansion and restructuring of the vineyards and the construction of a modern wine cellar, brought the family business to play a leading role in the rebirth of Sicilian wine.

The winery in Trecastagni is where tradition meets the most advanced technology. The company's heart beats in 4,000 square metres, on a total area of 27,000 square metres, between the large vinification area, the analysis laboratory, the modern bottling line and the underground barrique cellar.

Not far away, at the foot of one of the extinct craters dotting Etna, is the Monte Gorna estate with its typical lava terraces where the volcano's native vines grow. The company also owns vast tracts of land in Vittoria, in the Ragusa area, the production zone for Cerasuolo DOCG, and directly manages large vineyards in the rest of Sicily.

Cantine Nicosia has fully embraced the cause of organic farming and sustainability to combine environmental protection and food safety. For instance, the company has managed to cut down on pesticides and fertilisers by following viticulture techniques of the Magis protocol, the most advanced sustainable viticulture project in Italy. In recent years, Cantine Nicosia has obtained several international certifications, from UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 to the environmental certification UNI EN ISO 14001:2004, from BRC Food & Beverage to the International Food Standard (IFS). In addition, it has recently obtained the international 'ethical' certification issued by SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange), a global non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting ethical principles in labour relations and human resources management.

Nicosia Monte Gorna Riserva 2014 was awarded the Tastevin by AIS and is one of Italy's 22 best regional wines.

The Sosta Tre Santi Etna Rosato Brut Metodo Classico is among the Best 100 Wines in the World according to WINE ENTHUSIAST, one of the most authoritative American magazines.
