Friday 7th June. The schedule had us seated and tasting at 1,700 acre Feudo Arancio winery by 9am. There was the late night and the 30 minute journey to the estate to contend with first mind. This is the entrance to the cool, stylish, complex, obviously given a little black and white treatment. The tasting? Yep, was good. Loved the vibrant packaging to the Feudo Arancio ‘baisc’ range while the wines certainly demonstrated a house-style and pure Sicilian typicity. The high-end Hedonis 2007 (a Nero d’Avola and Syrah blend) and the beautifully balanced Hekate Passito 2010 sweet wine being particular favourites.

“Feudo Arancio’s philosophy is to make high quality wines respecting the surrounding environment. From the very beginning, we have applied a green approach to winemaking, reducing chemical treatments, water consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. Our mission is to bring Sicily around the world; every sip of our intense and velvety wines transmits the warmth, the history and the excitement of all that is truly Sicilian.”

Entrance Feudo Arancio is this weeks Sunday Wine Shot.
