The most important North European fair entirely dedicated to  wine, Prowein is around the corner.

However the Di Gaetano family is going to start the fair a day before. March 17th Firriato will join the Big Bottle Party planned by Falstaff, one of the most famous and spread megazines in Europe. Over this special occasion, Firriato will offer an attentive selection of Magnum, such as the Etna DOC bubbles of the Etna interpreted by the Gaudensius Blanc de Noir, or the  Red representing the energy of the volcano Cavanera Rovo delle Coturnie 2013 and the always timeless and outstanding Harmonium and Santagostino rosso 2013.

We are proud, thanks to our estates, to worldwide represent the extraordinary Sicilian ampelographic heritage– says Federico Lombardo di Monte Iato, COO of the winery- when our  clients taste our wines, they are aware to make a multisensorial travel across all the island, from the Red coming from the volcano to the freshness of the vines growing in the Favignana island. These elements are the flagship of our added value and we are looking forward to show it once more in a showcase like Prowein. “

The international fair of Düsseldorf, is one of the most important occasion for Firriato to talk to importers, enhance historical  relations or create new ones, in a particularty complicated and dynamic market such as the German one. Germany plays a key role among all those countries importing Italian wines and this is an historical square where Firriato wines meet the palate of the end consumers. A special mention should go to the Etna’ s wines of the Cavanera Estate, on the slope of the volcano, that come from the excellent grape harverst 2017. Among the most appreciated wines in the USA and Europe, Firriato will bring all its Etna lines at Prowein: from the Le Sabbie dell’Etna, to the Cru of the volcano and the classic method sparkling wines, real winemaking pearls resulted by hard research and experimentation. In addition to this prestigious line, Firriato will also present the new vintage 2017, particularly interesting under a quality point of view and, for sure, Quater Vitis Rosso 2014, recently awarded with the Tre Bicchieri del Gambero Rosso.
