The family cellars, an example of industrial archeology

The winery in Marsala, built in 1851, retains the typical layout of a Mediterranean “baglio” with a spacious courtyard, dotted with citrus and olive trees and wooden trusses, the work of master carpenters of long ago. Here visitors will be guided by young and competent staff to discover Donnafugata.

Underground barrique cellar, model of sustainable architecture

The underground barrique cellar, whose architecture is reminiscent of Basilica Cistern in Istanbul, is an exciting place where visitors can discover the secrets behind the aging of some of Donnafugata's most representative wines, such as Chiarandà, Tancredi and Mille e una Notte.

Built in 2007, it is an example of sustainable architecture: carved out of the tufo rock (calcarenite), in fact, it allows a reduced use of energy to maintain the desired temperature and humidity parameters (15°C and 85%).

Sala delle Botti, the quintessence of Sicily

La Sala delle Botti, così chiamata per le grandi botti qui conservate, ha un particolare fascino per i manufatti che custodisce. Sala delle Botti, so called because of the large barrels preserved here, has a particular fascination due to the artifacts it houses. Here visitors can admire some of the finest pieces from the family collection: ancient ceramics made in Burgio and Caltagirone; wooden sides of traditional Sicilian carts, embellished with bucolic carvings and gaudy pictorial decorations; the “keys” of the carts, bass-reliefs carved in wood and wrought iron friezes of particular value. An unique collection that will let you discover the soul of Sicily.
