Alessandro Viola 'Le Mie Origini' 2019

Viola's masterwork wine in his whole lineup: this Sicilian Catarratto puts the lie to the idea that we should be drinking white wines from Mt. Etna to the east (we shouldn't, not really). Ageworthy, but delicious right out the gate, this wine reminds us of the great, slightly oxidative white wines from the Jura—Viola's are like Ganevat in their expressiveness and texture. We can't say enough good things about this wine, so instead we give advice: buy one now to drink (please decant), and buy another to lay down for at least 2-3 years to see its magic unfold.

Alessandro Viola


“Who are we to think we can do better than nature!?"

Alessandro Viola is a Sicilian winemaker that grew up with a curiosity for his land’s native varietals  and developed a passion for the science behind winemaking. After studying oenology and viticulture, he traveled the world to deepen his winemaking knowledge before returning to Sicily.

Viola highlights the unique Alcamo terroir through his organic practices and working with native grape varietals that highlight the beauty and complexity of the land. While sipping on a glass of his wine, you’ll be instantly teleported to Sicily's dreamy landscapes.
