Donnafugata Winery in Pantelleria

Khamma winery, an example of sustainable architecture

Designed and built with full respect for the landscape of the island, the Donnafugata winery consists of two units. The part used for vinification is covered with hand-cut lava stone. The one dedicated to welcoming, called “palazzotto pantesco”, is characterized by vaulted ceilings typical of dammusi: an exciting place for a tasting overlooking the sea.

Donnafugata’s Giardino Pantesco, FAI property

In Khamma, among the company's vineyards, you can admire the Giardino Pantesco that, in 2008, Donnafugata restored and donated to FAI, Fondo Ambiente Italiano. A symbol of the wisdom of the island's farmer, the Pantellerian Garden is a self-sufficient agronomic system: the circular plan, dimensions and lava stone create the ideal microclimate for cultivating and protecting from the wind a century-old orange tree of the ancient Portugal variety, a precious vitamin factory.

One of the few remaining in the island, the garden can be visited independently during the opening times of the winery, passing by reception to pick up information material.

Alberello pantesco, UNESCO World Heritage

In Pantelleria Donnafugata cultivates Zibibbo (Moscato d’Alessandria) alberello pantesco, an agricultural practice inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, as creative and sustainable. The vine is, in fact, trained very low alberello, on small terraces bordered by dry-built lava stone walls.

Visitors can admire an heroic viticulture context during the winery tour.

Pre-phylloxera century-old vineyard

In 1999 Donnafugata restored, in the district of Khamma, a Zibibbo vineyard planted with several ungrafted plants, 120 years old, that had survived phylloxera.

Unique specimens that represent, for Sicilian viticulture, an historical find, and that can be visited during the Zabib tasting tour. Rare vines, able to withstand drought, limestone and salinity very well, whose vegetation-production balance gives rise to exceptional grapes, that make Ben Ryé Passito di Pantelleria DOC even more complex and elegant.
