This refreshing white wine is a blend of Grillo and Carricante. Light bodied and crisp, this wine displays aromas and flavors of stone fruit and melon.
The name of this wine comes from the originally spoken Sicilian term ‘feud’oro’ which loosely translates to ‘golden feud’. The name represents the ancient feuds (during medieval times) to control the land. Over time, the use of the adjective "d'oro" became restricted to the area of Marsala (in western Sicily), so we now simply say 'feud'o'.
Tifeo Rosso is a translucent ruby which borders on garnet red. Subtle aromas of cherry and raspberry mix with bolder scents of tobacco, brushwood, leather, and dark chocolate, finishing with a provocative mineral freshness.SHOP NOW

My husband and I visited Gambino winery and had such an amazing visit here!! The drive up the windy mountain road is well worth it when you see the spectacular views and beautiful vineyards at the top. We visited two of their tasting rooms and ended up having food with our tasting in the upper tasting room that was a lovely experience.
We really appreciated all the time everyone spent with us, which added such a personal touch to the experience. The wines were wonderful and an excellent price, and we would highly recommend anyone visit Gambino winery if they have the chance while visiting Sicily!!
We've been to a lot of wine farms and we really enjoyed this experience because, despite its size, this was a really personal experience. We ordered a food and wine pairing and really enjoyed the detailed explanations of local history, the grapes, the winemaking process and the wines themselves.
We visited Gambino Winery as part of a private tour of Mount Etna which we booked with Bruno. The wine tasting was 5 stars, one for each glass we had. I was really impressed overall with the quality of food and wine offered and by the end we were so full we couldn’t eat any more.
