Company History: Our history in Sicily is written in the land that we care for and have handed down for eight generations. With the profound respect we owe to our tradition, and always looking towards the future.
Over the years, Capofaro has been added to the mother estate, Regaleali, in Salina, in the Aeolian archipelago; Tascante on Etna; the historic Whitaker estate on the ancient Mozia island; and Sallier de La Tour, in Monreale. In a precise project of valorization of the autochthonous varieties and of the territories with the highest wine-growing vocation.
Each productive nucleus has its own marked personality and narrates an always different Sicily.
Next to the vineyards grow olive trees, wheat fields and almond trees. In the vegetable gardens, in the pastures, in the orchards, men and women work to help us keep pace with the seasons and give birth to the best products of Sicily. Each with its own character, each with its own rhythms.
Today, for us the biggest challenge is to preserve these places and leave them intact to our children, in a sign of constant attention to the protection of every single ecosystem.
