Pantelleria, island of sun and wind

A territory where nature is extreme

On the volcanic island of Pantelleria, we carry out a project of sustainability and heroic viticulture. Our vineyards are located in various districts that differ in soil (sandy and of volcanic origin), altitude (from 20 m to 400 m a.s.l.),  exposure, microclimate and age of the plants, including some examples of hundred-year-old vines.  

Pantelleria alberello

Symbol of creative and sustainable agriculture

On Pantelleria we cultivate  Zibibbo, a prince among the aromatic varieties, on the Pantelleria alberello, the only agricultural practice which, due to its creative and sustainable nature, has Unesco Cultural Heritage Status. The vine grows inside hollows, with a pruning system that allows the plant to take a horizontal course, almost creeping along the ground, which makes it possible for the plants to resist the wind.

Heroic viticulture

A project full of passion and commitment

On Pantelleria, viticulture requires dedication and care: the sloping lands, cultivated on terraces bordered by drystone walls made of lavic stone and the vines cultivated on Pantelleria alberellos, keep us busy every day. A context that requires a very high amount of manpower, about three times the average requirement of a quality-oriented vineyard, without counting the maintenance of about 40 km of drystone walls.

Lighea

“From the disheveled tresses the color of the sun, seawater flowed over the green, wide-open eyes.” Thus Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa describes Lighea, the bewitching siren and principal figure in his novel. She has inspired the creation of a complex and innovative wine and an equally original label. “It was not easy to print this label”, Gabriella (founder of Donnafugata, with her husband Giacomo) recalled, “and preserve the thousand shadings of colors of Pantelleria Island, painted in the original drawing.”
