The Donnafugata estate is located at the 60 km mark of the S.S. 624 Palermo-Sciacca state highway.
Coming from Palermo, you will see the winery first on your left, then a little further on you will see an overpass ramp on your right, which is the entrance to the estate.
Coming from Menfi-Sciacca, you will see the winery on your right; at that point, continue for just over 1 km and at the Contrada Cavallaro roundabout, go back on yourself, taking the exit for Sciacca so that you can take a right turn onto the overpass ramp, which is the entrance to the estate.
Coming from Mazara del Vallo, take the A29 motorway in the direction of Palermo. After 20 km, take the Castelvetrano exit and proceed towards Menfi-Sciacca, then after about 25 km, take the exit for Menfi. Follow the signs, initially for Sambuca di Sicilia, then for the S.S. 624 Palermo-Sciacca state highway. At the Misilbesi junction, take the S.S. 624 highway in the direction of Palermo and continue for 12 km until you reach the 60 km mark. You will see the winery on your right. At that point, continue for just over 1 km and at the Contrada Cavallaro roundabout, go back on yourself, taking the exit for Sciacca so that you can take a right turn onto the overpass ramp, which is the entrance to the estate.
Wine may be purchased during the event or ordered for home delivery.
Parking is limited at the Donnafugata estate. Further parking will be available at another car park close to the Contrada Cavallaro junction (between the 58 and 59 km mark of the S.S. 624). A free shuttle service will run from there to take you to the estate in just a few minutes.
