The most awaited event of the year, when the Donnafugata’s estate opens to the public on the night of San Lorenzo.
For over 20 years, for Calici di Stelle, the Donnafugata Estate in Contessa Entellina has been illuminated with lights, sounds and colors. Over time, the night of San Lorenzo has become an open-air party experience, to rediscover together the pleasure of the most refined conviviality.
For many enthusiasts, Calici di stelle is the most eagerly awaited event of the summer organized by the Movimento Nazionale Turismo del Vino.
To give continuity to the traditional welcome reserved for winelovers, this year Donnafugata confirms the event of August 10th with a different format and for a limited number of people: a full immersion in Sicilian nature, from the vineyard to the charming family garden, in the name of elegance and safety.
