HISTORY AND COMPANY
Tasca d’Almerita is one of the most famous and important Sicilian wineries, present for two hundred years and for eight generations in the equally famous Regaleali estate. The Tasca Counts have always been one of the avant-gardes of Sicilian and national development and wine research, so much so that their wines soon became well-known and respected labels in the world as a guarantee of quality and territoriality. Today the baton of father Lucio is taken by Alberto and Giuseppe Tasca who, combining tradition and innovation, have also succeeded in developing ecological themes such as biodiversity and environmental sustainability in the vast family estates. The vineyards of Tasca d'Almerita spread in the most suitable and beautiful places in Sicily, starting from the Regaleali estate in Sclafani to the island of Salina, the land of Malvasia, passing through Sallier de La Tor to Camporeale or even the north side of Etna, with Carricante and Nerello Mascalese vines at an altitude of 700 meters with 110 vineyard terraces. A new project on the island Mozia, on the Whitaker Estate, where Grillo grapes are grown. The whole range of wines produced by Tasca d’Almerita always manages to possess a very high quality, combining refinement, territoriality and typically Sicilian expressiveness. Internationally awarded wines that reflect the history of a century-old winery and the freshness of different areas of Sicily. You can really trust the signature of the Conti Tasca!
