Colombo Marsala is handcrafted to the exact standards of a centuries-old recipe that begins with harvesting the highest quality Grillo, Inzolia and Catarratto grapes, which are the key ingredient to our wine. Next, a â€œMistella,â€ a special must, is made. This event takes place once per year. Once the â€œMistellaâ€ is made, select wine brandy is added to fortify the wine and add our pleasant flavor. Next, keeping with longstanding tradition, the must is blended with the wine in copper kettles over a log fire to create subtle, unique flavor notes for Marsala Dry and Sweet.
