In Wine in Sicily Magazine the interview to Mattia Filippi

“Is there a more international place in the world than Sicily? Perhaps, but proving it would be arduous. The close succession of peoples, ethnic groups and conquerors over the last 4,000 years – those of which we can reasonably have traces – leaves little doubt as to the island’s vocation for hospitality. Among its most illustrious guests, there is one that is so ‘international’. It is Vitis vinifera, a plant that (it seems) from the Caucasus has spread, also via Sicily, throughout Western Europe and then, over the last three/four centuries, throughout the world. In fact, excluding Antarctica, we can say that the vine is present on all continents”.
