    Wine Partner: Fondo Antico – Trapani

    Fondo Antico was founded in 1995 by Giuseppe Polizzotti, that would promote his land and give voice to its vineyards. Owners for over 100 years of the Estate, the Polizzotti Family decided built a winery and started to produce fine wines. Initially oriented to cultivate international varieties, after careful considerations, Fondo Antico realized that the best way to enhance the Western Sicily was to focus on native grapes. In 2000, from the first harvest, were born international wines, but in 2004 they began to build their own personal identity, starting to produce wines made by autoconous grapes.

  • DiVino: Italy in the bottle – La Repubblica

    A journey through the wine labels of our country, to discover the small and great excellences of italian wineries.

    Ours is a country that has always been linked to wine since ancient Rome. Understand the italian wine field is not always easy, even for enthusiasts. DiVino is a column, written by Laura Di Cosimo, who wants to accompany the enthusiast among labels and different realities. Sometimes diametrically opposed. So here you could find the Passito di Pantelleria Ben Ryè next to the Vernaccia di San Gimignano, and again Terlodego that adorns the Dolomites arm in arm with that Greco di Tufo that talk about Irpinia around the world.

    Red Wines of Piedmont, Super Tuscan, Sicilian dessert wines and much more. The map of Italy could be rewritten and re-read – and in part it already is, if we consider the weight of wine tourism – based on the wealth of its wine heritage.

    White, red, rosé: choose your favorite or let yourself be intrigued.
