Alicant - Short for 'Alicante,' Alicant is Italian for the Grenache grapes that produce Gambino’s extraordinary red wine. Grenache is the Spanish name for Cannonau grapes. The Cannonau grapes are native to the island of Sardinia, north of Sicily.

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are among the most popular varietals in the world. In fact, even if you don’t drink wine, you’ve probably heard of Cabernet Sauvignon! One of the most widely planted grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon thrives in the warm, dry climate of Sicily’s lower lying areas.

Feu D'o Rosso

An easy drinking red blend of Nero d'Avola and Nerello Mascalese. These native Sicilian grape varieties produce powerful yet fruit forward wines and are renowned for producing many of the best Sicilian wines. Nero d’Avola is one of the oldest Sicilian grape varietals and Nerello Mascalese is considered to produce many of the best Sicilian wines, particularly when grown along the slopes of Mount Etna.

Feu D'o Bianco

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 Bianco

This fresh, aromatic, unoaked white blend of Carricante and Cataratto is crisp with minerality and aromas and flavors of spring flowers and citrus. 

Named for Tifeo, a divine creature in Greek mythology who was half human and half dragon. Tifeo’s wings lay between Messina and Syracuse, his tail underneath Naples, and his heart under Mount Etna. Tifeo was thought to have temporarily disabled the Greek God Zeus, who was later rescued by his son Hermes.
