Guest Producer
Francesco Rizzo, after years spent dealing with finance for an international company, decided to return to the windy island where his family used to live. His family owns a small vineyard in the countryside of Campobello (north-east of the island), a vineyard with outcropping volcanic rocks, capers and Zibibbo vines, 30 meters above the sea level and at around 300 meters from seaside. With the help of the oenologist Antonio D’Aietti – expert on the Pantelleria winemaking tradition who took care of more than forty harvests on the island – and with four other friends, he founded the Vinisola company in 2010. Through the production on site and the distribution of products made of Zibibbo grapes, the company contributes to the enhancement of the fruits of the island as well as of the tradition in the oenological field.
