Sikelia is the name the ancient Greek sailors gave to the island jewel of the Mediterranean, Sicily. It’s a place like no other – with scented orange trees lining a pastel-colored sea, and vineyards surrounding ancient ruins. Nero d’Avola is Sicily’s most important wine varietal. It means “black of Avola” (an ancient town), and offers a dark, lush wine that comes from its spicy, complex fruit. It’s wonderful when young and fresh – with notes of sweet smoke, blackberry cobbler, and morello cherry.

Our Family of Winemakers

Wine itself is wonderful, but the stories of the families and artisans who make it are equally important. Who does not want to know more about the composer, painter, singer, or writer? This is why you will find a photo of the winemaker and the story of the estate on every bottle-connecting those who make the wine with those who enjoy it.
