Discovering Tasca D’Almerita

Tasca d’Almerita, one of the most prestigious wineries in Sicily, has contributed to the island’s wine renaissance through a constant commitment to quality. Its roots date back to 1830, when Lucio and Carmelo Mastrogiovanni Tasca acquired a vast property in Regaleari, in the heart of Sicily, dedicating themselves to viticulture and the cultivation of crops.

In the post-war period, the winemaking of white, red, and rosé wines kickstarted their oenological activity, with the subsequent introduction of varieties such as Perricone and Nero d’Avola. The famous Rosso del Conte label was born from these vineyards.

Over the years, Tasca d’Almerita introduced international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, which have adapted beautifully to the Sicilian terroir. This has allowed them to rise to the level of renowned wineries worldwide, growing qualitatively.

Today, Tasca d’Almerita boasts estates in different areas of Sicily, including Capofaro in Salina, Tascante on Etna, Whitaker on Mozia Island, and Sallier de La Tour in Monreale. This expansion has enriched and diversified their production, offering a wide range of wines that represent the entire Sicilian region.

Tasca d’Almerita is also strongly committed to environmental respect and sustainability, with particular attention to the safeguarding of the agricultural landscape. It adopts farming practices that minimize human impact and has adhered to the SOStain and VIVA projects to measure the company’s sustainability. The company’s holistic approach to sustainability extends from vineyard to winery, with responsible use of energy, water, and other resources.

Today, Tasca d’Almerita is an example of eco-sustainable commitment. Its wines are the expression of the desire to give voice to the best terroirs of Sicily.
