Sallier de la Tour

Blessed with eternal Mediterranean sunshine, the hills of Sicily are particularly hospitable to the grape vine.  The Jato Valley, in the northwest part of the island, is part of Sicily’s “strada de syrah”, a cooler sub-region particularly suited to growing the syrah grape.    The 45 hectare estate is owned by the Sallier de la Tour family who have only recently organized the wines for export.  For this, they have asked their cousins, the Tasca d’Almerita family, to make and market the wines.  The wines are elegant and fresh and display the great potential of Jato Valley wines in for both indigenous and international grape varieties.
