Donnafugata is one of the most visible Sicilian brands in both Italy and abroad. Owned by the Rallo family for the last five generations, Donnafugata is known for quality, fruit forward wines produced predominantly around the town of Marsala and on the island of Pantelleria, although in recent years vineyard holdings have expanded to include wines on Etna and in Vittoria.
Based in the town of Vittoria in South East Sicily, Arianna Occhipinti is a winemaker with a big reputation both in Italy and abroad. With a focus on low intervention wines from Nero d’avola and Frappato, Arianna, daughter of Giusto Occhipinti of Azienda Agricola COS, is flying the flag for terroir through her study of single vineyard wines.
One of the most important Sicilian producers to emerge from the natural wine movement, Azienda Agricola COS have helped to pioneer a movement of sustainable viticulture and authentic winemaking in the south of Italy.
