Centonze Srl was established in 1998 by a family of oenologists: Giovanni Centonze together with his son and daughter Nicola and Carla. Giovanni is a well known Sicilian oenologist and former president of the Association of Sicilian oenologists. Nicola studied viticulture and oenology at Conegliano Veneto (considered one of the best university level courses in Italy) and set up a consulting company together with Vincenzo Bambina, also a very well known Sicilian winemaker, in 2000. Nicola consults for a number of estates located in the most suitable zones for viticulture throughout Sicily and follows all phases of production from the planting of the vineyards to the bottling of the wines. At these estates the best grapes in the best vineyards standing in the most significant terroirs are chosen, vinified and bottled with the label of Centonze. Approximately 20 hectares of vineyards belong to the company in the area of Trapani. The wines are mainly made with indigenous varietals, Grillo, Nero d’Avola, Frappato, Zibibbo (Muscat of Alexandria). The range also includes the only DOCG wine in Sicily, Cerasuolo di Vittoria (the blend being Nero d’Avola and Frappato), that dates back to 1606
