Kheirè is a word of Greek origin which means "Welcome". It is a tribute by Gorghi Tondi to the millennial history of Sicily and to the time when the island was an integral part of the glorious Magna Graecia. Kheirè is a white made from Grillo grapes, an ideal witness to a past with Greek origins also for the proverbial Sicilian hospitality, being the island crossroads of great peoples and different cultures.
