About the Region: Cerasuolo di Vittoria was the first Sicilian red wine to win DOC recognition in 2005. Its roots are very ancient. To trace its production, one must go back to the year 1600 when the city of Vittoria was founded by Vittoria Colonna, who promised two hectares of land to the first 75 colonists on the condition that each plant a vineyard. This contributed to starting the wine business that has been very active to this day.
