The Pellegrino vineyards are located in the westernmost part of Sicily, which is characterized by a great variety of microclimates that are considered the most suitable for grape growing. The Pellegrino family has since 1880 personally overseen the activities in the vineyard and in the winery, and the family is still today, having reached the seventh generation, involved daily in the management of the company. A long family history made up of respect, care, love and dedication, of values handed down from father to son, make it today one of the greatest families of Sicilian wine.
