Mark your calendars:
Alma Wines will attend the international trade fair Prowein in Dusseldorf, starting on March 13th and ending on March 15th.
Besides from being extremely honored to attend the event, we are proud to announce that Impassito Passito di Pantelleria and Marsala Riserva Superiore 2000 will be featured at our stand.
Pantelleria is an Italian island situated southwest of Sicily in the Mediterranean Sea, and it is noted for its sweet wines, Moscato di Pantelleria and Moscato Passito di Pantelleria, both made from the local Zibibbo grape. The most distinctive element in its terroir is the strong hot winds that come out of Africa on their way to southern Italy, along with the high summer temperatures. Even in the past, the drying of grapes and making of wine was familiar to many cultures that occupied the island, including Phoenician, Roman, Byzantine, and Arabic.
Marsala, on the other hand, is an Italian town located in the westernmost part of Sicily. The present-day name, deriving from the Arabic “Marsa Allah”, meaning “Port of God”, gives us an idea of just how strategically important the town once was. However, when the English came to Marsala, they did not come to conquer, but rather for the town’s recognized wine. Since they thought it would be popular in their native country, they needed to fortify the wine with the addition of alcohol if it was to survive the long ocean voyage – thus was born Marsala wine.
These two prestigious, exceptional wines are only a couple of the many things we work hard for.
They represent an extension of Alma's values in the production of Sicilian wines, such as our Sotto il Sole Nero d'Avola and Grillo Viognier, thus enhancing the product line. We hope you can come learn more about Impassito and Marsala Superiore as well as our team and our production. See you soon!
