Producer Profile

Gabrio Bini

Gabrio Bini's transformation from eccentric architect to eccentric winemaker finds its stage on the volcanic island of Pantelleria. Nestled amidst rugged terrain and renowned for its hot springs and capers, Pantelleria serves as the unconventional canvas for Bini's winemaking artistry. Employing 100% natural fermentation in clay amphorae, Bini embraces the island's native grapes—Pignatello, Catarratto, and Zibibbo—allowing extended skin contact to yield wines that reflect the untamed essence of their terroir. Each sip unveils a wild expression of Pantelleria, evolving dynamically with every moment in the glass.

Where The Wines Come From

Sicily

Sicily is the ultimate wine playground, an island paradise where fiery Mount Etna meets cool ocean breezes. Think sunshine-soaked grapes ripening in volcanic soil, bold reds like Nero d'Avola (think juicy black cherry) and fragrant whites like Grillo (hello, citrus!). Beyond the classics, there's a treasure trove of unique native grapes. It's a place where history swirls in your glass, from ancient Greek techniques to delicious sun-dried Marsala. A beach bum's haven, and a wine lover's playground, all rolled into one!
