Sunday 28 May, the appointment that celebrates the culture of quality wine throughout Italy is back: at the historic cellars of Donnafugata in Marsala, guided tours, Slow Food workshops on autochthonous vine varieties, tastings of great vintages from the winery's historic reserve and the art of baking by Fratelli Vescera, passionate guardians of ancient Sicilian grains.
Novelties and confirmations for the winery at the first Vinitaly without the founder Giacomo Rallo. In Verona, the first fruit of the investments in eastern Sicily, the Frappato di Vittoria “Bell'Assai”. The new label will be autographed by its author Stefano Vitale.
Lighea and Sherazade: perfect for wine bars; Chiarandà and Tancredi: always “right choices”; Ben Ryé 2008: simply outstanding.
In the course of the prestigious wine competition "Concours Mondial of Bruxelles" Chiarandà 2007 has been awarded with the Gold Medal. A significant confirmation of the excellence of this white wine, flagship of the Donnafugata production.
On December 6 hundreds of sommeliers and wine-lovers attended the 2nd Donnafugata Day held by AIS (Italian Sommeliers Association) at the Rome Cavalieri.
Aromatic whites, fruity and elegant reds, the result of a qualitatively positive year. At the Verona Fairgrounds, tastings of the Sicilian estate’s 2004 and 2005 as well
