Cerasuolo di Vittoria is a red wine that is specific to the province of Ragusa, as well as parts of Caltanissetta and Catania. This ancient viticultural area dates back to the third century BC. The Cerasuolo di Vittoria began much later, however. In 1607, when the city of Vittoria was being established, the founder offered an acre of land to each settler that cultivated a vineyard. Thus began the passion. The Denomination of Origin was granted in 1974 and Guaranteed in 2005, making it the only D.O.C.G. in Sicily.
