Focusing on preserving the earth and protecting its natural rhythms, Tasca D’Almerita has written its history in Sicily, a land it has cared for and looked after for eight generations. Along with the profound respect it shows to its traditions, the winery has always looked to the future, picking up the Gambero Rosso “Winery of the Year” award in 2012 and being the first to be given V.I.V.A. Sustainability status in 2018 by the Italian Ministry for the Environment and, recently, the Wine Enthusiast “European Winery of the year” award in 2020 for the sustainability.
Tasca D’Almerita cultivates grapes in the vineyards of five different estates – Regaleali, Capofaro, Tascante, Whitaker and Sallier de La Tour - each with its own characteristics including different soils and climates - giving life to a long season of harvests beginning in mid-August and reaching their completion between the end of October/beginning of November.
Next to its vineyards grow olive trees, wheat fields and almond trees. In the vegetable gardens, in the pastures and in the orchards, men and women work to help Tasca D’Almerita keep pace with the seasons and give birth to some of the best wine available in Sicily or anywhere else in the world for that matter.
Tasca D’Almerita rightly prides itself on its extraordinary range of wines, all of which are created with an unmatchable enthusiasm and passion for the land in which they are born and impeccable attention to the properties and DNA that each of them possess.
