Surprising and original, the world of Florio wines captivates attention with its luminous Mediterranean splendour, its fascinating history and its bold modernity.
Since 1833 Florio has been synonymous with marsala throughout the world.
Built in tufa stone by Vincenzo Florio in 1833, the Cantine Florio in Marsala welcomes visitors into a unique environment, where history, architecture, modernity and design blend together for a journey into an unexpected world that will surprise even the most knowledgeable wine tourists.
Here there is a new way of conceiving the spaces within the Cantina ( wine cellar), which is no longer just a place where unique wines are produced, but which opens up to visitors for events, exhibitions and tastings.
Florio wines come into existence in a beautiful corner of the Mediterranean, the "Fascia del Sole" (Sun Belt), an area in south-western Sicily characterised by a special connection between the microclimate, vines and soil, and develop for decades in the peaceful silence of the historic Cantine.
Since 1833, Florio has gained unique experience, reinterpreting the past with modern winemaking technologies to produce wines of great prestige which can be savoured on many occasions: marsala, liqueurs, raisin wines and sparkling wines are waiting to be discovered, or rediscovered, as original aperitifs, to accompany a dessert or to be sipped while meditating.
