DONNAFUGATA PRODUCES BEAUTIFUL WINES WITH THE GOAL OF PAYING TRIBUTE TO SICILIAN CULTURE AND PRESERVING THE ENVIRONMENT
In 1983, the experienced winegrowing couple Giacomo and Gabriella Rallo decided to invest in a new Sicilian project that they called “Donnafugata.” Their vision was to create a contemporary winegrowing operation based around three sites in western Sicily and to produce a range of international and indigenous variety wines to showcase the potential of Sicily.
Today the estate is comprised of an historic family cellar in Marsala that dates back to 1851, a 667-acre estate at Contessa Entellina planted to a diverse range of grapes, and a third cellar on the volcanic island of Pantelleria, where Donnafugata cultivates 168 acres of Zibibbo vineyards. The company employs state-of-the-art, sustainable viticulture techniques at all three estates for wines of the highest quality.
At Donnafugata, stewardship of the environment is taken as seriously as the production of wine. The winery was one of the first wineries in Italy to implement solar energy; which now powers 100% of their operation. In 2015 the island of Pantelleria was given UNESCO certification recognizing its unique vine training method
