Tasca d’Almerita

The vineyards of Mozia are utterly unique. Once a Phoenician colony, this island in Marsala’s Stagnone lagoon, is an extraordinary archeological site. Here, under the Sicilia DOC, the destinies of two families—Tasca d’Almerita from Palermo and Whitaker from England—came together in this coastal ecosystem to make wine where vineyards have long played a part. Of the island’s 40 hectares, seven are planted with Grillo. In the oldest part of the vineyard, vines are still cultivated ad alberello (bush-trained), an ancient training method only found ...

Gallica

Gallica is an artisanal Napa Valley winery focusing on limited production, hand crafted wines. The desire to personally handcraft wine from coveted sites, work side-by-side with committed growers who embrace organic and sustainable farming practices, and to explore interesting varietals, led Rosemary Cakebread to make wines under the Gallica label beginning in 2007. Her winemaking practices are simple, relying on small lot fermentation and hand punch-downs to gently coax out the lush tannins. Her wines have achieved cult status and are highly s...
