For the past 30 years, Fabio has continued the work of his grandfather and father, acting as a guardian of the ancient plants and their grapes.

We hope you will join us at 6:30 on Thursday, February 18th, for a tasting of the Sicilian wines of Feudo Montoni. We will be joined by the winery owners, Fabio Siraci and Melissa Muller, and Melissa will teach us to make her famous Mama Adele's Braised Goat (using lamb) while Fabio tells us about their amazing wines.

In the late 1800s, the history of Feudo Montoni was bound together by the Sireci family when Fabio’s grandfather, Rosario, purchased Feudo Montoni, recognizing the particular characteristics of the land and its biodiversity. He found ancient vines, such as Perricone, Nero d’Avola, and Catarratto. For the past 30 years, Fabio has continued the work of his grandfather and father, acting as a guardian of the ancient plants and their grapes. The invention of tradition becomes the slogan of Fabio’s decisions. Fabio personally takes part in each step of the production process from the vineyard to the cellar. His wines exhibit richness, elegance, style, and class.
