Visit the Wineries

Cantine Florio

Overview

Florio has created a new Winery concept: a magical, all-involving place that provides a unique experience in an unexpected world.

The historic Florio Winery in Marsala, built in tufo stone by Vincenzo Florio in 1832, welcomes visitors and offers them a captivating journey of discovery in a sophisticated, unexpected world.

Tradition and innovation blend in the Florio Concept Winery: the Winery tour and tasting experience, in the Donna Franca Florio tasting room, evolves to become original, unusual adventure involving the senses and the soul. The myriad sensations experienced by visitors to the Concept Winery are induced by the architecture itself, by over a century of history, the design of the spaces, like the Store and the new spectacular Florio Terrace, and the way in which all the senses are stimulated.

The idea is to give visitors a complete, unforgettable experience, and lead them on a journey of discovery of a world of magical atmospheres, well-being for the senses, and style. An unmistakable style that embodies state of the art technology and modernity, excellence and uniqueness, knowledge and culture.
