The winery "Cantina Alcesti" is located in Marsala in the province of Trapani on the Italian island or winegrowing region Sicily, The family has been based here for many generations, but since 2003, a separate wine is produced. Before, the grapes were sold to large wineries. The whole operation was renewed and reorganized, from the delivery of the grapes, through the temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to the cellar with the Tonnaux and French oak barrels. The vineyards cover 30 hectares of vines, which are planted with the native varieties Nero d'Avola, Grillo, Grecanico and Pignatello (Perricone), as well as the international varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Syrah and Merlot. The annual production is around 200,000 bottles of wine, two-thirds of which are white wines and one third red wines.
