Under the artistry of owner/winemaker Marco Sferlazzo, Porta del Vento is making some of the most exciting, wines in all of Sicily and beyond. Marco became a winemaker after a long career as a pharmacist.  HIs vineyards were originally owned and tended by a large corporation who decided to pull up aging indigenous  Perricone and Catarratto vines to plant French high-yield varieties. Marco found this loss of culture and biodiversity distasteful and decided to purchase the vines himself and convert all the vineyards to organic and biodynamic agriculture.


The tiny, Porta del Vento winery sits 2000 feet above Palermo, near the village of Camporeale, an area of Sicily where nature can be very harsh. At nearly 600m elevation, on incredibly steep slopes, this area is known for constant, brutal winds, blowing through the vineyards. These ever-present winds, along with the large, diurnal, temperature range, allow for wines of great concentration, character, low alcohol and racy acidity.   The Catarrato is extremely territorial and broad: orange blossom, wildflowers, chamomile, wild herbs, citrus zest and a bit of salty minerality. On the palate, it is very fresh, medium bodied and well structured.
