Duca di Salaparuta once again confirms its ability to export the flavours and colours of Sicily to the world through its three brands, each an ambassador for a specific territory and its peculiarities, and a complete wine range able to satisfy in any consumption moment and with any accompaniment.
Since 1824, the "Duca di Salaparuta" has been following in the footsteps of his founder, Prince Giuseppe Alliata who began producing wine on his estates in Sicily. This is how great wines were born, served at numerous banquets and receptions that the Duke organised for his illustrious guests - ambassadors, princes, dames and knights from all over the world who visited his splendid palace. Today, these wines are more modern, produced using the best Sicilian grapes from restricted and carefully selected areas where each specific grape variety finds the best growing conditions and are commercialised under the names "Duca di Salaparuta" and "Corvo".
