PRE-ORDER NOW: The wines of Arianna Occhipinti arriving this Winter
The Occhipinti name has, appropriately, become synonymous with the natural wine movement. Arianna Occhipinti and her uncle, Giusto (of COS), are amongst some of the most well-respected and trailblazing winemakers in the category.
In 1998 Giusto invited Arianna to assist him at Vinitaly. Arianna was 16 at the time and while she knew little about wine, the experience stuck with her and she went on to study viticulture and oenology in university. Ironically, her formal schooling quickly proved counter-intuitive, as everything Arianna had learned from her uncle about organic viticulture, manual harvesting and wild fermentations clashed with what she was being taught to do (or protect against) in school.
Undeterred, Arianna started making her own wine with fruit from just 1ha of abandoned vines in Vittoria and released her first vintage in 2004 at the age of 24. Her rise to fame in Sicily and around the world has been spectacular, and rightly so. Between being a young woman in a male dominated industry (in a very 'traditional' region) and bucking with the trends of the moment (conventional agriculture, nondescript wines, loads of new oak) Arianna caught the attention and adoration of consumers around the globe who are eager to drink authentic and transparent wines.
