Set amongst the company’s vineyards at Khamma, is the striking Giardino Pantesco, which Donnafugata restored and donated to FAI, Fondo Ambiente Italiano (the Italian National Trust) in 2008. It is a typical form of rural architecture with high dry-stone walls. The circular plan, size, and lava stone create the ideal microclimate for cultivating and protecting from the wind and drought an age-old orange tree, a precious source of vitamins. Symbolic of the knowledge possessed by the island’s farmers, the garden is an agronomic system that is self-sufficient with regard to water. Open to visitors during the months of July, August, and September, it is included in the itinerary of a full tour from the vineyard to the winery. Dimensions: outer height of the wall from 2.7 to 4 m, the inner height of wall 3 m, wall thickness 1.30 m, inside diameter 8.4 m, outside diameter 11 m.
