The Queen of Natural Wines: Sicily's Arianna Occhipinti
Sicilian vintner Arianna Occhipinti enrolled in RAGUSA ￼￼winemaking school at the age of 18. Since then, the 32-year-old has gained notoriety for the natural wines she produces from her vineyards in Vittoria, on the southeastern tip of Sicily. Her SP68, a red blend of frappato and nero d’Avola, is named for the oldest wine route in Sicily.
