ALAGNA

The Alagna winery began its activity in Sicily in the first half of the twentieth century thanks to the hard work of its founder Giuseppe Alagna, who was the first to recognize the potential of the Sicilian wine market. His son Antonio Alagna continued to invest time and energy in the enterprise managing to make it grow in terms of sales, capacity and number of employees, and thus became an important economic structure of the province of Trapani. Alagna uses a blend of traditional and modern techniques for the production of these grapes. For example, it has begun to use systems of mechanical harvesting, but it also uses ancient systems such as the spur pruning cordon. Moreover, the entire production is made trying to minimise the environmental impact and to preserve the naturalistic heritage of the area.

For the climatic conditions, the mild temperatures, the hilly lands, the light sea breeze and the sun, Sicily presents a perfect environment for the cultivation of the vine and the production of wine. The Sicilian vineyard is divided into three great districts: the western one of Trapanese with the famous wines of Marsala, the north-eastern one with the wines of Etna and the southern one with the products of the Ragusano.With its wines, this region bears witness to a centuries-old vocation to viticulture, which has its roots already in the times of the Greeks. Today the Sicilian oenological production is experiencing an important turning point: the valorisation of the potentialities not yet fully expressed on the island.
