Cantine Aperte (Open cellar) is one of the main appointments in the Italian wine world, when the member wineries of Movimento Turismo del Vino open their doors to the public. Every year Donnafugata welcomes visitors to its historic cellars in Marsala proposing guided tours, workshop, wine tastings and entertainment for children.
We look forward to welcoming you on Sunday 27th May at our historic winery in Marsala. The programme includes a guided tour of the winery and the wonderful barrique cellar, followed by tastings of all of the company’s wines. Activities for children (4 to 12 years) will be available again this year, as well as interactive stations for adults.
