Arianna Occhipinti has become a household name in the global wine community. She has planted her own roots firmly in the soil of the southeastern Sicilian appellation of Vittoria and strives to work in harmony with the land she cultivates. Her wines are idiosyncratic and energetic expressions of this rugged and beautiful part of the world. 

From Arianna:

"Il Frappato stems from a dream which I had when I was a girl to make a wine that knows the land that I work, the air I breath, and my own thoughts. It is bitter, bloody and elegant. That is Vittoria and the Iblei Mountains. It is the wine that most resembles me, brave, original and rebellious. But not only. It has peasant origins, for this it loves its roots and the past that it brings in; but, at the same time, it is able to fight to improve itself. It knows refinement without forgetting itself."
