Donnafugata was founded in Sicily by an enterprising family with 160 years’ experience in premium wines. Giacomo Rallo and wife Gabriella, daughter José and son Antonio are engaged in an entrepreneurial project with a focus on attention to detail and synchronizing people and nature to make wines that correspond increasingly more to the potential of this area.
The Donnafugata adventure began in Marsala in 1983. In 1989, Donnafugata arrived on the island of Pantelleria, commencing its production of naturally sweet wines.
The name and winery logo are a tribute to Sicilian history and literature, which interweaves the fate of a fleeing queen and the famous novel The Leopard (Il Gattopardo).

Extreme Quality is the entrepreneurial style which reflects the company philosophy. responsability for the eco-compatible and cultural development of the territory.
