Hauner Salina Bianco 2017 - Sicily, Italy


The Story

Established in 1968 by Carlo Hauner, a former artist and designer who became entranced with the wines from Salina, an island off the coast of Sicily in the 1960s. He relocated there and revived an abandoned Malvasia vineyard. In the 1980s he planted several other grape varieties including Nero d’Avola, Alicante and Nocera. He is credited as to resurrecting the traditional sweet Malvasia wines of the island that he fell in love with upon his first visit. He has since passed away but his son Carlo Haunder Jr is continuing his legacy.
