Overview
More
Imagination, knowledge and deep roots. The Donnafugata wines are a passionate interpretation of Sicily and its sensorial universe. Donnafugata was created in Sicily by an enterprising family with 160 years’ experience in premium wines. The adventure began in the Rallo family’s historic cellars in Marsala in 1983 and at its Contessa Entellina vineyards in the heart of western Sicily. In 1989 Donnafugata arrived on the island of Pantelleria, starting to produce naturally sweet wines.

A short but informative tour of the grounds/cellars was followed by a tasting of 4 wines paired with traditional Sicilian street food. The wines were great and I fell in love with the passito Ben Rye - a sweet dessert wine. The food was well...More
