Producer profile

Viteadovest

Viteadovest is a winery located in Marsala, Sicily. It was founded from the union of the vineyards of the Portelli-Puleo and Angileri families. The estate spans five hectares divided into six areas, cultivated with vines for over a century.

The vineyards primarily use the traditional sapling method with low yields per hectare. In 2013, inspired by their experiences as entomologists, the founders resumed wine production, focusing on high-quality, traditionally cultivated wines.

The winery produces several wines, including notable reds and whites from local grape varieties like Grillo, Catarratto, Nero d'Avola, and Nerello Mascalese.

Wine region

, Italy

Sicily, Italy's largest island and its most extensive region, is a treasure trove of natural wine wonders. Nestled just across the Strait of Messina from the mainland, it boasts Palermo as its capital. This city is a melting pot of cultures, where Arab, Greek, Roman, and Spanish influences merge, not just in its mesmerizing architecture but also in its rich culinary heritage, including its thriving natural wine scene.

The island's history is as complex as it is captivating, mirrored in its diverse cultural tapestry. This complexity extends to its viticulture. Sicily ranked as Italy's third largest wine-producing region after Veneto and Tuscany, has seen a remarkable evolution in wine quality over the last three decades. While international grape varieties like Chardonnay and Syrah are making their mark, it's the indigenous varietals - Nero d’Avola, Catarratto, Grillo, and Inzolia - that truly define Sicilian natural winemaking. These native grapes, thriving in Sicily's unique terroir, give life to natural wines that are as vibrant and varied as the island itself.
