Zoom Wine Dinner with

Feudo Montoni in Sicily!

Feudo Montoni is an island unto itself: an island within an island. High up in the middle of Sicily, the main crop has been durum wheat since Roman times. For more than 600 years, Montoni has been an island of green in the center of a yellow expanse. This isolation has worked to their advantage, helping to preserve ancient grape varieties.

The 'Island of Montoni' is 200 acres at 500-700 feet above sea level. The daily temperature can swing up to 40 degrees and the vineyards are kissed by both the Tramontano and Scirocco winds. All of this makes for a singular microclimate.

Rosario Sireci purchased the property in the late 1800s. He found ancient vines, such as Perricone, Nero d’Avola and Catarratto. He fell in love with them and he preserved them as the family does to this day. For the past 30 years, Rosario's grandson Fabio and his wife Melissa Muller have been the guardians of these ancient vines. They produce excellent wines.

Fabio and Melissa will join us on Friday, June 18 at 7 PM for a Zoom Wine Dinner.
We hope you will too!
