Due Terre, Sicily

Due Terre was founded by Alcamo native Vito Lauria and Californian wine enthusiast and merchant Catherine Stratton. Vito originally returned to Sicily in 2005 after achieving his Degree in Enology from University of Udine in 2003 and spending a few years working at wineries in Northern Italy. Upon returning he was determined to revitalise his family’s old winery in Alcamo and spent 5 years making improvements. Due Terre is based on important, historic relationships that Vito has with small, family growers working organically on the varied sand and calcareous soils of Mt. Bonifato. All Due Terre wines are from certified organic growers who have been practising for many, many years and who have genuine engagement with the vines and love for their land. Wines are fermented on native yeast and guided into the bottle with the aim of letting the quality of the fruit speak without the need for manipulation or heavy sulphite doses.
