Feudo Arancio Grillo, Sicilia 2022

4.470590000 star rating 17 Reviews
Easy-going sunny Sicilian grillo showing apricot and pink-grapefruit notes with a touch of saltiness on the refreshing finish, unsurprising for vines growing so close to the sea. This is a great match to Sicilian roasted vegetables. In a region with serious water problems, the co-operative has taken great strides to reduce water usage through, for example, the use of drip irrigation. To further conserve the water supply, waste water is channelled into an organic mud-water purifier so that it can be put back into the reservoirs.

Feudo Arancio

This substantial Sicilian estate is based on the windy south coast of Sicily. It has two large vineyard areas, covering almost 700 hectares in total, situated at Sambuca di Sicilia in the west and Ragusa in the east.

The grape varieties are each planted in separate blocks, and are used to produce a range of single-varietal wines in the state-of-the-art, temperature-controlled winery, although some of the wines are also bottled at the excellent Mezzacorona winery at the foot of the Italian Dolomites in north-east Italy.

Environmental sustainability
In 2002, Feudo Arancio were the first wine cellar in Italy to be awarded the EMAS 2 – Eco-Management and Audit Scheme – a certification created by the European Community for environmental sustainability and management.

They have also reduced the use of chemicals as far as possible and have introduced alternative techniques such the use of beneficial insects in their vineyards. Also, grassing over of the land has protected it from erosion and the planting of plants rich in nitrogen has reduced the need of fertilizers.

At the winery, solar panels have been installed to provide hot water for cleaning cellar equipment. These panels also provide about two-thirds of their electricity demand. In addition, half of the wine cellar is underground to ensure a correct temperature in the rooms where the wine is kept, thereby reducing the need for air conditioning and electricity.
