A big party yesterday celebrated the closing of the events dedicated to Dolce&Gabbana’s Alta Moda.
A kermis for which Dolce&Gabbana chose Donnafugata wines again, as in 2017 for the edition held in Palermo, celebrating the encounter between excellences of Made in Italy that take Sicily into the world.
After the evening in the key of the Gattopardo (the Leopard) in Palma di Montechiaro, the spectacular one at the Valley of the Temples, and the one in the heart of Sciacca‘s historic center overlooking the sea, the celebration culminated in a memorable Sicilian folk night. The stage of the party was the enchanting Verdura Resort in Sciacca, where the senses of the international guests were bewitched by Sicilian typicity and a triumph of music and fireworks.
José and Antonio Rallo of Donnafugata were happy to personally present their wines at the party, with a “journey in the journey” through precious small productions from western and eastern Sicily. Thus, wines from the four extraordinary terroirs the winery is committed to could be tasted: the white Vigna di Gabri and the metodo classico rosé from Contessa Entellina estate, Sul Vulcano rosato from Etna, Floramundi Cerasuolo di Vittoria and the Passito di Pantelleria Ben Ryé.
The guests present at Verdura were able to explore the pairing of these wines with a very rich gastronomic proposal that combined typicity and refinement: from caponata to parmigiana, from the cheese stand to the traditional stand of panelle, sfincione and arancine, to the glory of the desserts with two great classics, cannoli and Sicilian cassata.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana saluted Sicily, their inspirational muse, in this way, after giving birth to 4 days of fashion shows, red carpets and exclusive parties that transformed some of the island’s most iconic places into a big open-air catwalk. And an echo of gratitude resounds in Sicily, to the motto “see you Dolce&Gabbana”.
