Overview

It was born out of an act of love towards Sicily and her most important native red grape varietal, Nero d'Avola. We gather only the most perfect grapes, those that are sun-kissed, and make wine out of them with care and passion. What a result! It is a work of balance and harmony that has captured us as only a great composition could have done. We therefore decided to call it Harmonium.
