Our Story

The history of Gurrieri is born from a family passion, in the scenery of Sicilian viticulture. Giovanni and Angela, born and raised with the agricultural and peasant passion of father Vincenzo and mother Graziella who have been producing grapes for fifty years, continue the family tradition and decided to produce grapes, wine, and oil in Sicily, in Chiaramonte Gulfi, in the province of Ragusa. The dream of making a Sicilian wine, which represents the identity of the territory of birth, begins in 2010 with the first bottling.

We are in the countryside of the Iblei Mountains, in the fertile Val di Noto, in the area of Cerasuolo di Vittoria, the only Sicilian DOCG. After years of tradition and cultivation to produce wine and oil for family use, Giovanni starts a modern wine production from the 3.2 hectares of land in the Chiaramonte Gulfi and Mazzarrone countryside and, by rationalizing the areas most suited to the wine production of the district, rents 3 hectares in Chiaramonte Gulfi.

The family agricultural tradition becomes a niche business activity, to produce wines of great value, capable of respecting the land of origin and enhancing it through its best fruits. For each label, small quantities are produced: about 3000 bottles.

This is how the Gurrieri “collection” was born. It becomes the reflection of the agricultural and rural vocation of the Ragusa area.

Nowadays the family works jointly to produce Sicilian DOCG and IGT wines, cultivates organically and enhances native grape varieties such as Nero d’Avola, Frappato, Grillo and an international grape variety, the Syrah, well adapted to Sicilian soil and climate. Dad Vincenzo, Don Vicè, to whom some wines are dedicated, continues his work in the vineyard as a tireless and passionate worker. Mom Graziella is involved in the administrative part of the company and takes care of the family. Her sons dedicate to her the Classic Method Sparkling Wine from Nero d’Avola and Frappato grapes vinified in white, which is called “Donna Grazia”.

The wines tell the unchanged beauty of the rural tradition in the uncontaminated nature of the Iblei Mountains. In the vineyards, grown organically and with respect for the land, the rows follow the slopes of a clayey reflections soil, a natural “paradise” for the vine and the white stone walls that enrich the landscape. Soils of calcareous origin give richness and complexity. The ventilated Mediterranean climate, here characterized by important temperature excursions, contributes to give the product strength, vigor, aromas and unique flavors
