    molino a vento - new packaging

    Molino a Vento has a new fresh collection.
    New image, new label, new bottle and screwcap closure!

    Easy to serve and easy to drink: the Sicilian winery Tenute Oriestiadi is becoming even more accessible for winelovers with this line of 5 monovarietal wines.
    The wines are young, lively and flavorful, proudly showing the best characteristics of each grape: Inzolia, Nerello Mascalese, Nero d’Avola and Pinot Grigio.
    Inzolia, Pinot grigio and the Rosato (rose’ made of 100% Nero d’avola) are perfect for aperitif and light summer meals, Nerello Mascalese and Nero d’Avola are food-friendly, fruity and with enough body to be drank also with meat.

    Another important fact: Nero d’Avola and Pinot Grigio are now certified organic!

    The organic farming is blessed by the perfect Sicilian weather and by the sandy soils of western Sicily, rich in organic matter and iron. Essential for perfect grape growing is also the wind: it mitigates the hot summer temperatures, allowing the incredible variations in temperature, vital to the life cycle of the vines.
    The Molino a Vento line is dedicated to the wind: its name in fact means Wind Mill.
