Established in 1970, Colomba Bianca is the largest Sicilian grower cooperative and
the biggest Italian producer of organic wine, with more than 1,800 hectares
dedicated to organically farmed vines. Colomba Bianca also has a further 7,500
hectares of vineyard, growing indigenous and international varieties. Despite their
size, they engage a philosophy of micro-viticulture and micro-winemaking to ensure
the ultimate precision, quality and expression of terroir. The stunning range of single
variety and innovative blends are tailor made under the watchful eye of head
winemaker Mattia Filippi. Dynamic and passionate, the Cantine is constantly
evolving with investments in the vineyards and in the technology of their five specialist
wineries. With their sights firmly fixed on the future of Sicilian wine, Colomba Bianca is
rapidly becoming one of the leading names in organic winemaking in Italy.
The highest standards are attained in these sun-drenched vineyards through the use
of innovative technology; and the careful process of mapping the terroir according
to the weather patterns, harvesting time, soils and vine age. The grapes undergo a
sensory analysis and are hand harvested at the optimum maturity levels, according
to the terroir and microclimate of the vineyard. They are then harvested into 20
kilogram containers, to prevent the grapes from being prematurely crushed. The
vineyards are made up of distinct soil and climate conditions and range from sealevel
up to 700 metres above sea level, imparting subtle complexity into the wine.
The grapes were carefully sorted, destemmed and crushed. Fermentation took
place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures with selected yeasts. 50% of
the wine was then matured in French oak barrels for a period of six months.
