Allumea Grillo Chardonnay is an organic wine from Sicily made from 70% Grillo and 30% Chardonnay and is produced by a company called Orion Wines.

Orion Wines is a company created to bring together interesting wines from small growers and wineries from all over Italy. The company was created by Luca Pomaro and winemaker Alessandro Michelon and Orion Wines retains complete control over the vineyards and growers they work with. The idea is to produce wines from indigenous grapes that express the typicity of the particular region where they are grown. They also produce the very popular Borgo di Trulli range of wines.

The organic vineyards for the Allumea Grillo Chardonnay organic wine are located in the province of Trapani in Sicily. The vineyard are approximately 25 years old. The grapes are manually harvested, usually in the middle of August for the Chardonnay whilst the Grillo grapes are harvested approximately 2 weeks later, around early September. The two different grape varieties are vinified separately but using the same technique. The grapes are destemmed, pressed and the must is chilled and left to rest for 48 hours. The juice undergoes temperature contolled fermentation at 17C for 10 days. After fermentation the wine is chilled to 10C to avoid malolactic fermentation and it is left on it lees for 20 days to increase complexity and aromas. The wine is aged for 2 months in bottle prior to release.

No fertilisers and no pesticides are used to make this organic white wine.
