The history of Tasca d'Almerita spans eight generations and is centred around a family of viticulturists dedicated to Sicily, land preservation, and sustainability. It all began in 1830 at Tenuta Regaleali, a project to cultivate specific native grape varieties in suitable terrain. This endeavour led to the establishment of four additional estates: Capofaro on the island of Salina, Tascante on the slopes of Mount Etna, Whitaker on the small island of Mozia, and Sallier de La Tour in the Monreale DOC. Tasca d'Almerita played a pioneering role in founding SOStain, the first sustainability program in the Sicilian wine sector, encompassing comprehensive criteria. The company’s commitment has earned recognition from Wine Enthusiast, which awarded Tasca "European Winery of the Year," and Robert Parker Wine Advocate, with the honour of the prestigious Green Emblem. This accolade is reserved for a select group of sustainability ambassadors who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to environmentally conscious viticulture in the face of evolving climate challenges. Today, Tasca d'Almerita, already a “Società Benefit”, has proudly achieved B Corp certification, solidifying its position as part of a global movement of businesses upholding high social and environmental standards.
