    About the winemakers
    Carlo Pellegrino
    Sicily
    Carlo Pellegrino

    Don't worry, this isn't about mineral water. It is about one of the most successful wineries and one of the oldest wine dynasties in Sicily. The Pellegrino Winery has been closely linked to Marsala for seven generations. The over 2000 years old, always contested port city in the west of Sicily was named "Marsa Allah" during an Arab rule phase, which later became Marsala. The wine was named after the city. At the beginning of the 19th century, the producers of Marsala had their own merchant fleets, because the British had made it known worldwide, like Port, Madeira or Sherry before them.

    The notary Paolo Pellegrino also recognized the chances of this product, which was completely new for Sicily. In 1880, together with his son Carlo, he founded his own winery and in just a few years they succeeded in becoming one of the most important Marsala wineries. Carlo and his wife, themselves the daughter of a French wine-growing family, passed on their knowledge to their children and grandchildren. The history of the Carlo Pellegrino winery has always been linked to the development of Marsala, which is why the winery experienced a steep upswing, but also the period of unbridled mass wine production, which degraded Marsala from a top product for the upper classes to a simple wine for cooking and consumption.

    Pellegrino countered this development by, on the one hand, recalling the historical recipes for the production of Marsala and, on the other, focusing on the vinification of dry regional white and red wines and, on the island of Pantelleria, producing the famous Moscato and Passito di Pantelleria with its winery.

    At present, seven descendants from three generations work in the company and the associated vineyards, which cultivate about 150 hectares of vineyards, mostly organically. From Trapani to the hinterland of Marsala to the coast and Pantelleria. Under the motto "Tradition that is committed to innovation", Pellegrino has made extensive investments, especially in the vineyards. This has saved continuity for generations, even though Marsala now accounts for only one seventh of total production. But the return to historical production methods, such as the Solera system, similar to Sherry, and the high quality that has always been maintained now pay off with the renaissance of Marsala.

    Three wineries belong to the Empire: the historically impressive headquarters in the centre of the port city of Marsala, a modern business in Duca di Castelmonte and a wine farm on Pantelleria, where dried Zibibbo grapes are used to make a famous Moscato named after this island.

    The Cantine Carlo Pellegrino is managed by Pietro Alagna and Benedetto Renda. It is thanks to the passionate management duo that the company has been completely renovated and today boasts a great range of wines made from local grape varieties. From the legendary Marsala period, the two striking towers, former wine containers, were converted into tasting and presentation rooms. From the very top, visitors now have a magnificent view over the harbour and the nearby Trapani saltworks.  SUPERIORE.DE

    "Since 1880, Pietro Alagna as President and Benedetto Renda as Managing Director have been a perfect management duo, who have made the company a major player in the most important international markets."Gambero Rosso
