Vinisola was founded by a group of people with very different life experiences but with the common factor of a deep love for the charming island of Pantelleria and the contrasts of its territory, which is harsh and terrible when the sea roars and joyous when the sun shines and, at the same time, it has a rich, uncontaminated agricultural environment that has historically driven the island’s economy. Vinisola intends to contribute to the promotion of the island's fruits, the values of its people and their wine tradition through local production and distribution of products deriving from the queen of Pantelleria's agriculture: the grape, Zibibbo grape, in particular, which originated in Egypt and were introduced by the Phoenicians in Southern Italy and Pantelleria, areas where almost all Italian production is still cultivated. Passion, tradition and high quality are the key elements that drive this adventure.
Vinisola is amassing the grapes from the vineyards of its owners, small lots of lands located in several parts of the island, Rekhale, Scauri, Serraglia, Gibiuna/Coste di Ghirlanda, Campobello, Khamma e Piana di Ghirlanda. Subject to weather conditions the vineyards of the owners produces yearly about 150/200 quintals of Zibibbo DOC grapes. The land ownership in Pantelleria is highly fractionated and Vinisola acquires Zibibbo grapes from DOC vineyards of other producers after analysis of the physical, chemical and organoleptic qualities of the fruit of the vine. Vinisola gathers selected grapes from its own vineyards or from third-party grape growers at its own winery in Kazzen. The winery can currently process 450 quintals of grapes, from which we produce 100 hl of Passito DOC and 235 hl of Pantelleria Bianco DOC.
