Donnafugata and Dolce&Gabbana

Creativity, tradition and innovation

Unconditional love for Sicily unites Dolce&Gabbana and Donnafugata in a collaboration in which creativity, tradition and innovation are intertwined.The result is a collection of wines with a strong Mediterranean personality, extraordinary ambassadors of Sicilian colors, aromas and culture in the world. The passion for work and attention to detail represents the values upon which the two Made in Italy excellencies have built their history.

At Contessa Entellina, where Donnafugata comes from

In the settings of the Gattopardo

In the heart of western Sicily - among the hills of Contessa Entellina, between 200 and 500 m a.s.l. - lie the vineyards Donnafugata comes from. The climate is Mediterranean, with rain concentrated during the autumn and winter months, dry and breezy summers, with a great range of air temperature variations between day and night. The soils are predominantly medium-clayey, but vary according to the peculiarities of the individual districts.  

A prestigious red with a noble and revolutionary soul

Between tradition and innovation

Craftsmanship, creativity and innovation blend into this prestigious red, inspired by one of the protagonists of the novel “The Leopard”. The “passionate” and “revolutionary” character can be found in the style of the namesake wine that was created in 1990, from the innovative blend of an international variety with an indigenous one: Cabernet Sauvignon and Nero d’Avola;  a production choice that has led to the discovery of Sicilian winemaking excellence at an international level.

Tancredi Dolce&Gabbana e Donnafugata

The name Tancredi recalls one of the protagonists of the Leopard, an inexhaustible source of inspiration also for Dolce&Gabbana; in the novel and in the film of the same name, Tancredi is the favorite nephew of the Prince of Salina, precisely because of his charm and ability to adapt to changes. With a passionate and irrefutably Sicilian character, Tancredi was born in 1990 from an innovative blend for that era of a native grape variety with an international one. Dolce&Gabbana has created the coordinated image of this “revolutionary” wine, paying homage precisely to the Leopard, and in particular to the contrast between tradition and modernity that Tancredi summarizes in itself: and while gold, blue and sinuous lines of Baroque inspiration celebrate the splendor of the aristocracy now in decline, red, green and the geometric figures refer to the new revolutionary values that are emerging in Sicily after the unification of Italy and which prelude to the contemporary history of the island.
