"The Cusumano winery was established in 2001, when brothers Alberto and Diego, took over the management of the company from their father, Francesco. From day one, the philosophy behind Cusumano has been to emphasize the importance of terroir knowledge, investment in innovative technology, and above all, passion for winemaking.

"With the help of an intimate knowledge of the Sicilian terrain and consultant winemaker Mario Ronco, the Cusumano wines are made with 100% estate grown fruit from 4 different territories throughout Sicily, many with grapes that are indigenous to Sicily such as Nero dAvola and Insolia. The Cusumano family is committed to creating wines that showcase these distinct regions, resulting in the brand becoming the #1 Sicilian wine in the US with 90+ ratings year over year. They were also among the first to adopt innovative glass stoppers, which are easy to open, re-usable and keep the wine fresh.

"Wine, just like people, shows a distinct personality when put it in the right context. Thats why we have travelled all around Sicily in search of the most suitable lands for diverse and high-quality viticulture. The extraordinary variety our land offers is a gift we welcome with devotion and transform into experience. Diversity is a virtue which we cultivate and share with passion." -Diego Cusumano

Cusumano

View all from Cusumano
CusumanoCusumano's wines come from premium sites all over Sicily, and are produced at the Partinico (straight west of Palermo) based family winery by third generation winemakers and brothers Diego and Alberto Cusumano. They craft wines of the 'new' Sicily typified by outstanding varietal expression, rich flavors, and a sensuality that could only be born under the Sicilian sun. Wine insiders have long predicted that Sicily would one day become Europe's dominant wine region. The sheer number of prime vineyard sites available, the diversity of microclimates and soils throughout the island, make it possible for Sicilian winemakers to work not only with exciting native varietals, but also with many international grapes. Cusumano is the pre-eminent producer turning that prediction into reality.
