Meridiana

Wine Explorers' opinion

Located on the 35th parallel north, halfway between Sicily to the north and Tunisia to the west, the Meridiana vineyard enjoys a temperate Mediterranean climate. The estate's wines, all in elegance, made with freshness and fruit, have made Meridiana the flagship of Maltese viticulture.

The terroir

The vines are cultivated in sustainable viticulture on limestone rock soils with a relatively clayey substrate. It enjoys 300 days of sunshine per year.

The estate

Iconic Maltese estate, Meridiana was founded in 1985 by Mark Miceli-Farrugia, with the support of French oenologist Denis Dubourdieu. Since 1992, the estate has been consulted by the Antinori family.

The vineyard

The 17 hectares are planted on small hills whose blue clay subsoils retain moisture. The proximity to the Mediterranean brings freshness and a certain salinity to the wines.

The wines

Meridiana produces wines with the greatest respect for fruit, characterized by freshness and a saline finish, made from Vermentino, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or even Syrah grapes.
