In 1898 Francesco Nicosia, the great-grandfather of the current owner Carmelo Nicosia decided to open his first wine shop in Trecastagni, Sicily, on the eastern slope of Mount Etna.

This was the golden age of Mount Etna wines, which are renowned and esteemed across Europe for their minerality and “volcanic” personality.

Carmelo Nicosia then invested heavily in expanding and restructuring the vineyards, and building a modern winery, he helped transform the family business into one of the leading players in the renaissance of Sicilian wine in Italy and around the world.

Nicosia is headed by Carmelo Nicosia and assisted by his sons Francesco and Graziano.

Sicilia Grillo

"Certified organic, this Sicilian white opens with a bright, fresh, demeanour offering notes of citrus with a fine backdrop of minerality. The site is an ancient seabed of calcareous remains, and you can taste the electricity the soil injects into the wine. Perfect with a summer corn salad, or a fall shellfish boil." Gismondi On Wine (July 2020)
