The Carole Bouquet winery is located on the small volcanic island of Pantelleria (Sicily), which belongs to Italy and lies between Sicily and Tunisia. The firm is run by the French actress Carole Bouquet and is one of the largest wineries on the island.
Bouquet owns almost 15 hectares of land in Pantelleria, which is famous for its Moscato di Pantelleria, made from Zibbibo grapes (Moscato d'Alessandria).
The wine is made using a method of concentration (called appassimento in Italy) that has been practised on the island for centuries: the grapes are harvested by hand and left to mature for a month on cane racks, resulting, after pressing, in a sweet amber-coloured wine that has a balanced and subtle flavour.
