Since 1880 they have cultivated the best Sicilian grapes, and today we represent a reality of great tradition and experience on the island. Over the last 135 years they have acquired a deep knowledge of the territory, of the methods of cultivation of native vines and of the best techniques of vinification of the grapes.
The Pellegrino family has always personally overseen the activities in the vineyard and in the winery, and the family is still today, having reached the seventh generation, involved daily in the management of the company. A long family history made up of respect, care, love and dedication, of values handed down from father to son, which today make it one of the greatest families of Sicilian wine.
The Pellegrino vineyards are located in the westernmost part of Sicily, which is characterized by a great variety of microclimates. The territory boasts the highest vine-covered area in Italy as it is considered the most suitable area of the island for grape growing. Here in fact the intense light, the dry climate, the fresh soils, the winds coming from the south and the strong atmospheric temperature range, create the ideal conditions for the production of quality wines.
