Contessa Entellina, where Donnafugata began, in Western Sicily combines art, story and literature.

n the land of the Gattopardo (Leopard): that is where Donnafugata was born

At Contessa Entellina art, history and literature intertwine in a unique territory where Donnafugata's adventure begins. These are the places of the Gattopardo (Leopard) and his "woman on the run", a queen who found refuge right where the company vineyards stand today, but these are also the places of Donna Gabriella who, here, is a pioneer of quality female wine-growing.

 

Sustainability and tailor-made work: between good practices and biodiversity - Cantina Donnafugata

Sustainability and tailor-made work: between good practices and biodiversity

Contessa Entellina Estate is a perfect example of Donnafugata's attention to detail and its attention to sustainability. For over thirty years we have  adopted a system of good practices: here we produce clean photovoltaic energy and grow 19 varieties of native and international vines. From our experimental fields where we recovered Nocera, an indigenous variety and relic of the past, the blend of Rosa was born, the new rosé, the result of the collaboration between Donnafugata and Dolce & Gabbana. 

Mille e una notte: an icon of Italian excellence in the world  - Cantina Donnafugata

Mille e una notte: an icon of Italian excellence in the world

The unique terroir of our Nero D'avola di Contessa Entellina vineyards gives life to our standard-bearer red wine: Mille e una notte.
Its production process reflects Donnafugata's craftsmanship: the grapes are hand-picked and further selected upon arrival at the cellar. Once the fermentation has taken place, it is refined in barrique and for a long period in the bottle. An elegant and refined red right from the label depicting Palazzo Filangeri Cutò set in a sky of "A Thousand and One Nights" full of stars and full of promises.

Contessa Entellina and il giardino di Gabriella

Contessa Entellina and il giardino di Gabriella

Donnafugata wines express authentic and sustainable Sicilian winemaking. Taking care of the land means paying attention to the quality of production. Therefore, the creation of horticultural and other gardens on the estates, the integration of agricultural and natural environments, and the protection of natural areas are acts that nurture agriculture and, above all, culture, enrich the landscape with biodiversity, and enhance its beauty.

Here too is the garden conceived by the green mind of Gabriella, comprising three elements: from the species most representative of Mediterranean culture to exotic and native plants and a picturesque double row of palm trees. A bridge between culture and agriculture, created with the care of one who knows that beauty comes from hard work and respect for future generations.
