THE WINERY

TERRITORY

Cantine Birgi is located in the heart of a natural setting of overwhelming beauty. Production area stretches between the towns of Trapani and Marsala (Trapani), the heart of wine production in western Sicily, which has been described by geologists as the "City of the three seas" (Stagnone, Tyrrhenian Sea, Strait of Sicily). The particular climatic conditions and exposure, mixed with the geological structure of the soils, mark the area as a perfect location and terroir to produce unique products with extreme Mediterranean characteristics. This land boasts a millennial winemaking tradition that has been valorized and renewed thanks to the hard work of the winery.
