I try to create wines that suit our climate and our way of life – wines to drink with the food we grow, make and eat.
Spectra winery was realised to focus on our passion for the region and its ability to produce dry – grown and environmentally sustainable wine. Recently a new home was established on our holistic philosophy to winemaking which starts with climate, empahasises the importance on the vineyard, as well as wine’s relation to the food we love to grow, cook, and eat.
Mark Crittenden, co-owner
Mark’s passion for wine began after moving to Sicily when he was 19 years old. He lived there for 5 years during his time in the Navy as an Air Traffic Controller and became immersed in the Sicilian wine culture. After visiting many wonderful family-owned wineries the region had to offer, Mark developed friendships with many of the owners. These cherished friendships gradually turned into business relationships, and over 10 years later, he is still pursuing his dream of working in the wine industry. In Mark’s free time, he enjoys cycling, camping, and crafting gourmet meals in the kitchen to pair with his favorite wines.
