Caruso e Minini is a joint venture between two families and two different stories that merged when Stefano Caruso, the third generation of winemakers, met Mario Minini, owner of a marketing company in Northern Italy.
Together, back in 2004, they built the foundations of Caruso & Minini, a state of the art winery in Marsala, a city at the westernmost point of Sicily.
It is an ambitious challenge, which sees as protagonists the Caruso family’s agricultural tradition and the Minini sales expertise. A winning bet because, to date, wines reach fans in more than 30 countries around the world and we are delighted to be part of it.
Tradition and excellence, with a look into the future. In fact, today Stefano is flanked by his two daughters Giovanna and Rosanna who are actively taking part in the daily work at the winery. Their influence that has brought a breath of fresh air to the vineyard.
Giumarella and Cutaja are the names of the family vineyards where Caruso & Minini wines are produced. A total of 120 hectares located in the inland of the Trapani province. The highest hills, dedicated to the cultivation of the whites varieties, reach an altitude of 450 meters above sea level, whereas the valley bottom is where the red varieties grow. Every single grapevine was planted following the best combination of exposure, soil and climate. This land hosts local grapes such as Grillo, Catarratto, Grecanico, Inzolia, Zibibbo, Nero d’Avola, Frappato and Perricone as well as some international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Syrah and Merlot.
