The history of Tasca d’Almerita in Sicily is written in the land that they care for and have handed down for eight generations, with the profound respect they owe to tradition, and always looking towards the future. Over the years, more areas have been added to the mother estate in a precise project, expanding the varieties and the territories with the highest wine-growing vocation, which each have thier own marked personality, and narrate an always different Sicily. Next to the vineyards grow olive trees, wheat fields and almond trees. In the vegetable gardens, in the pastures, in the orchards, men and women work to help keep pace with the seasons and give birth to the best products of Sicily. Each with its own character, each with its own rhythms.
