The wine house Duca of Salaparuta is born in 1824, and its founders is Giuseppe Alliata, Prince of Villafranca and the Duke of Salaparuta. The Duke, a man with great idea, decided to make wine on one’s own with Inzolia grapes, which come from the vineyards of his farm in Casteldaccia to make a refined product so to offer it to the illustrious guests of Villa Valguarnera. Today so as in the past the wines of Duca of Salaparuta represent a complete selection of taste of high drink. A list of wine of high quality, aristocratic and high prestige. A line that continuous the big story of the Italian enology.
