Tenuta Rapitala includes 225 hectares of vineyards located in the heart of Sicily. Here it was the parents of the current owner Count Laurent Bernard De La Gatinais who started the winery in 1968. Thanks to the French roots of the father of Count Laurent Bernard De La Gatinais, Rapitala was the first Sicilian winery to plant international grapes. Nowadays the winery is known for its high quality and diversity of wines where tradition and innovation go hand in hand. In addition to winemaker Silvio Centonze who is responsible for the cellar, agronomist Ignazio Arena works in the vineyards. Both want to work as environmentally friendly as possible. To achieve this, renewable energy is used from windmills located on top of the hills surrounding the house.

The name Rapitala is derived from Arabic and means land of god. Arabic texts and architecture can still be found in Sicily because the island has been Saracen in the past. This is what you call a world class Sicilian. In the glass, this 100% Grillo has a light straw yellow color. Did you know that, based on DNA research, Grillo comes from a crossing of catarratto and moscato d'Alessandria (also called zibibbo). The Grillo has become very popular in recent years because the cold fermentation has enabled them to make a delicious fresh fruity wine from the Grillo grape. In the nose, the wine gives a beautiful and intense bouquet with fresh citrus, melon, almonds and lavender. The taste is soft, elegant, fresh, lively fruit and a crunchy minerality. This Grillo from Rapitala goes well with vegetarian pastas, white meat and grilled fish.
