On August 10th, on the night of San Lorenzo, Donnafugata will open the doors of the Estate of Vittoria in Acate (RG) for the first time with an exclusive event, reserved for a limited number of people. A full immersion in the nature of eastern Sicily, in the name of elegance and safety.
Calici di Stelle is the summer event that people most eagerly await, an event organized by the National Tourism Movement of wine, in which Donnafugata has been participating for over 20 years, celebrating the dialogue between Art and Wine.
The program of the event includes a visit to the vineyards and the winemaking cellar and continues with a special wine tasting paired with a gourmet menu.
The evening is completed with testimony in memory of Carla Fracci and a classical ballet performance in the moonlight with exceptional guests and artists, to celebrate the artist who has represented Italy in the world, and who worked hard for transmitting the universal values of commitment and dedication to the new generations of dancers.
Antonio Rallo – the winemaker of the family business – has selected some of Donnafugata’s most prestigious labels, including the historic vintages, now out of production, of Chiarandà 2010, a long-lived and extraordinarily rich Chardonnay, and two Donnafugata icons, the Mille e una Notte 2009, an Italian excellence, and the Ben Ryé Passito di Pantelleria 2009, a sweet wine among the most esteemed in the world.
Great attention will be paid to the expertly-studied combinations for the event between Donnafugata wines and the refined cuisine of Villa San Bartolo Resort.
Dancing at Calici di Stelle is back, and in grand style, with an exclusive event that pays tribute to Carla Fracci, the recently deceased great étoile of La Scala, who in 2017 was a guest of Donnafugata on the occasion of the release of Floramundi, Cerasuolo of Vittoria Docg.
During the evening, it will be possible to enjoy a classical ballet performance with a repertoire that made Carla Fracci famous: Rebecca Bianchi, prima ballerina of the Opera Theater in Rome, selected by Carla Fracci in 2009 when she was the director of the theater of the Capital, will perform with Michele Satriano; the dancers of Teatro Massimo in Palermo Diego Mulone, Martina Pasinotti and Elisabetta Di Chiara will also perform.
Donnafugata has the well-being of its customers and collaborators as its priority.
