The History

In his youth Marco di Bartoli worked with his father on the family farm near the town of Marsala. His obsession with cars proved too strong, leading to his first career as a professional race car driver. Towards the end of his career he found himself ready for a change. He describes thinking back on his youth in Marsala and feeling distressed that the once proud wine traditions of Marsala had sunken so low and deciding that he would be the one to change things.

The Philosophy

Decades later in the mid 1990s Marco’s three children had all joined him in his work making both fortified and passito wines on both Sicily and Pantelleria. His kids and their contagious energy pushed him towards experimenting with indigenous ferments (the vineyards had always been farmed organically) and less oak.
