What does a 20-year retrospective of one of the most iconic wineries in Sicily look like? An amazing opportunity if filling all available seats within 20 minutes of promotion is any indication! Those lucky enough to attend were in for an incredible tasting of 11 spectacular Donnafugata wines dating all the way back to 1996! Winemaker and Owner, Antonio Rallo led the group through the guided vertical tasting which featured rare gems even visitors to the winery have not had the opportunity to taste side-by-side. We were honored to present and introduce enthusiastic Napa tasters to 20 years of Donnafugata in this one-of-a-kind tasting. Please enjoy the pictures below and be sure to visit the iconic estate on your next adventure to Sicily.
