Today Cantine Pellegrino is the biggest sicilian family-owned winery and it is the only one on the island to produce such a wide range of products: red and white wines, passito wines and marsala wines. For each production, the company has three sites in three different territories: Cardilla winery in Trapani countryside for white and red wines, Pantelleria winery for Passito wines, and finally the historic winery in Marsala for marsala wines.
The guided tour of the historic cellars in Marsala includes three marsala wine tasting:
-“marsala superiore riserva oro”;
- “marsala vergine riserva 1980” in pairing with pastries;
-“marsala fine rubino” in pairing with dark chocolate.
The tour also leads to the discovery of small treasures hidden among the barrels: cooper’s old tools, five nineteenth century sicilian carts, the original plaster cast of a 298 BC Punic ship.
