Since 1824, Duca di Salaparuta has been interpreting Sicily with a unique and personal style.
Each wine is an original and immediately recognisable expression of the most important terroirs and preferred grape varieties, as well as the personality of the winery.
Duca di Salaparuta grows the grapes destined to bring the rich scents of the Mediterranean into the glass on their own three estates situated in the three corners of the island.
The location of these three estates are in the best areas of the island: Suor Marchesa in Riesi, Risignolo in Salemi and Vajasindi on the slopes of Etna.
The desire to interpret in a personal way the grape varieties chosen by Duca di Salaparuta, which are grown here, has led to innovative experiments, some of which have now become true classics, while others still represent interesting oenological challenges, such as Sentiero del Vento, the Vermentino grown on the Tenuta di Suor Marchesa.
Each Duca di Salaparuta estate produces wines with a strong identity and expression of the terroir, dedicated to a consumer who is eager not only to savour a terroir through a wine, but also to discover new nuances of well-known grape varieties.
The careful choice of the best land, the care of the vineyard and the strict control of the grapes that arrive at the winery, where the most advanced technologies are used, are only the first steps in the production of wines that bring Sicily to the world.
In fact, despite the importance assumed by technological innovation, in the genesis of a historic wine, or in the creation of a new wine, the work of man remains central. Every day he lives in close contact with the grapes, taking care of their evolution until they become the clear and full expression of their land and the realisation of a vision.
