Founded in 1833 by Vincenzo Florio, the Florio Winery in Marsala look out towards the bright sea of western Sicily. Wrapped by the energy of the winds, brushed by a salty tang from the waves, these beautiful and silent cellars harbour the oak-wood barrels where Florio Marsala gently ages in seemingly motionless movement.
Built in volcanic tuff stone by Vincenzo Florio in 1833, the Florio Cellars invites the visitor to explore its extraordinary atmosphere, here history, architecture, modernity and design blend to offer a journey in an exclusive and astonishing world that thrills even the most expert wine-tourist.
Florio has always produced its Marsalas using grapes that grow along the coasts of western Sicily. Everything starts from here, from vineyards overlooking the sea and absorbing its salinity and heat, grown while respecting the nature of the vine and the soil. These are the grapes that aer used to create Marsala, a sustainable wine by definition, not only at the winemaking level but also in terms of the socio-economic life which surrounds it. The Florio Winery, built in tuff-stone and equipped with a natural ventilation system, have always been an example of sustainable architecture, committed to the use of local raw materials and workers: long ago as it is today.
