About the Winery:
For many years now, Sicily has led the way in Southern Italy in the production of innovative wines from indigenous varieties. Completely organic, with vineyards resting on the coast of Sicily, grapes bathed and pampered by the air of the Mediterranean sea and fattened by plenty of sunlight, the vines are naturally free of parasites and illnesses. La Mura represents modern winemaking in Sicily, from indigenous varieties and reflects the diverse elements of Sicilian territories.
