At Amorici Vineyard our philosophy of hand-crafted natural winemaking honors the holy blood of the perfect grape.
When the grape is respected and traditional winemaking procedures are employed,
the results are both a gracious collaboration with Mother Nature and a beautiful wine.
The Messina history of winemaking dates back to family winemaking merchants on the small island of Ischia in the Bay of Naples, Italy. The excellent wines of Ischia have been in demand since Roman times and were desired by Roman nobility. The Messinas,’ as wine growers and producers, combined with the seafaring nature of an island people were producing wine and marketing their wines throughout the Mediterranean for many years.
I, Joseph Messina, a descendant of these early vintners, strive to produce wines of their admiral recognition. Present day production of Ischia wines does not meet the high demand. The famed wines seldom, if ever, leave the beautiful island if Ischia. However, wines produced with my ancestral background can be purchased directly from me at the Amici Vineyard or they can be delivered right to your door.
Amici Vineyard Winery is committed to sustainable agricultural practices and operates
in an environmentally conscious manner. Amici strives to minimize its carbon footprint and leave
Mother Earth better for generations to follow.
Our wines are produced without flavor or color enhancers and potassium sorbate. The addition of some sulfites is required to stabilize a wine and allow it to age properly. Decanting 1 hour prior to consumption will allow the wine to breathe and lessen its total amount of sulfites.
