Cantine Intorcia was founded in 1930 by the Intorcia family, who still runs it to this day. Begun as a small family run winery, today the winery covers an area of 25,000 square meters (around 270,000 square feet) with the capacity to process over 100,000 hectoliters (about 2,641,720 gallons) of wine, including evocative aging cellars capable of refining up to 20,000 hectoliters (528,344 gallons) of wine in oak barrels.
Marsala has always been known and appreciated for the unique style of wine that bears its name. The winery is part of the Consorzio Volontario per la Tutela del Vino Marsala (Volunteer Consortium for the Protection of Marsala Wine). Culture, passion, history, and tradition are intrinsic to Marsala wines and to the Intorcia family. They are returning to their ancient traditions to protect the priceless heritage of Marsala, the city, and its wine.
Marsala was the first among Italy’s wines to be recognized, by a forerunner law (Ministerial Order on October 15, 1931 and was signed by the Ministers Mr. Acerbo and Mr. Bottai, which regulated the “Production boundary of Marsala’s typical wine”), the once known, nowadays, as DOC (Controlled Denomination of Origin).
