Winemaker Nicola Centonze has created, in Marsala, something completely new: a whole new category called bitter wine. Whitehouse, being the translation of the traditional Sicilian “casa bianca," describes the headquarters where this new product is born. The inspiration of light reflects off the white walls, immersed in the sea landscape, warmed by the sun and surrounded by aromatic orange trees. The name also has a second meaning, a reference to the merchant John Whitehouse, who, in 1773 finding himself on Marsala and thought to keep his wine longer by adding some alcohol. This intuition led to the creation of Marsala. Nicola Centonze’s intuition has led him to infuse his island wine with the local bitter herbs. The innovation of a Marsala wine with the addition of a bitter component can be enjoyed as both an aperitivo or after dinner.
