The Gurrieri family produces wine, because they share a passion for great wines. That passion resulted in the idea of founding a family business, the Graziella Battaglia farm. Their love for vineyards has led to the production of D.O.C.G, D.O.C and I.G.T wines from autochthonous Sicilian grapes of Ragusa area. Having avoided conventional farming systems to follow those of organic vine growing, the family aims at producing bunches of grapes and wines, which can express the quality and character of the vineyard in complete harmony with nature. Gurrieri wines tell the story and the beauty of an uncontaminated nature of the Hybleaen Mountains, in the southeast of Sicily. Their downward slopes, characterised by clayey, shimmering ground, are embroidered by vineyard rows, whose colour graduations give the traveller a paradisiac view. Such wines are the result of a careful selection of grapes from our vineyard, which are harvested by hand to afford more precise selection, and carried in small baskets to tend to do a better job of protecting the grape’s juice content from oxidation due to damaged skins. They are treaded softly and made into wine after a long maceration of the must together with the skins (not for the white wine) by means of thermoregulatory mechanisms. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is decanted in wine casks or bottled. The bottling helps refine the wine and it is necessary to express to the best its characteristics, while ageing enhances its qualities. It is usually put on the market one year after the grape harvest. The farm grows the finest, autochthonous grape varieties and produces I.G.T Nero d’Avola , I.G.T. Frappato wines in their purity, D.O.C Vittoria red wine, D.O.C.G. Cerasuolo di Vittoria wine and a white wine, Il Bianco Donna Grazia.
