One wedding and an idea
When Laura and Steven married, they wanted to give their guests a taste of the Med, so they shipped over cases of Sicilian wine. For months after, their guests begged them for more... and an idea was born.
Laura, on frequent visits back to Sicily, renews acquaintences with local winemakers, making agreements to bring their wines to Scotland.
A Bistro is born
Laura and Steven open the doors of La Sicilyana Bistro, serving authentic Italian food and Sicilian wine to enthusiastic customers
In response to incredible demand from visitors to the Bistro, Laura and Steven start selling their Sicilian wines online, building a loyal army of customers throughout the UK.
A Fresh New Look
Launch of the new wine online site, with even more choice of exclusive Sicilian wines.

Conosci la nostra famiglia
From sunny Sicily to Scotland for the love of her husband Steven, she is the “Wine lady”, always planning the next wine hunt to find a new, exciting label to be added to our list. Laura leads our customer service team - answering your questions is never a problem!
A true Scot, in love with both his wife Laura and all things Sicily - especially the wines! Steven is the team leader and the Admin boss, making sure your orders are sent out promptly. He used to run marathons, but now he runs the wine business instead - and he says that marathons were easier!
Packaging & Shipping
Emily is in love with Sicily and its food and wine, having spent several holidays there with her family. Her free time is dedicated to her adorable pets Patch (the dog) and Tweedle (the cat)! Emily takes care so that your wine is safely packed and arrives in perfect condition, as quickly as possible.
Paola is the heart of our Sicilian team and Laura's younger sister. With a diploma in Wine Tasting and Sommelier, Paola regularly tours the Island with Laura, organising the tasting agenda and taking care of the suppliers. Their (very) volcanic after-dinner conversations about wine are epic!
Sommellier and Master Taster
With his friendly advice, when a great Sicilian wine is out there, Enzo will waste no time to make plans for us to visit the winery and taste his latest discovery! When in Sicily, Laura, with Paola and Enzo have regular wine tasting sessions to debate over the richest flavour and tannins!
