Following the thousand year old tradition of the vine in Sicily Pellegrino has always put land first: the family farms are witness to this.

They stretch for more than 300 ha. (Gazzerotta, Kelbi, Rinazzo, Triglia Scaletta), and are in the most suitable areas of western Sicily, which have the best soil, microclimates, and varieties for the production of our wines. Investments have been put into these farms for replanting with clones of foreign and local varieties.

Today Pellegrino has three operative units. The historical cellars in Marsala, Duca di Castelmonte winery in Cardilla and a third winery on the island of Pantelleria.

The fame of Marsala wine is due mainly to the British, who had already traded in Port, Madeira and Sherry products. In 1773 they docked in Marsala where they tasted this "nectar". They were completely mesmorised. By using similar production techniques to the other sweet wines, a new product appeared on the market. This was the beginning of Marsala’s  global adventure.

In 1880 Paolo Pellegrino, notary with a strong passion for grape growing, founded the company; Cantine Pellegrino, in few years, succeeded in transforming the family company into one of the most important wineries in Marsala, keeping this leading position until today.

The history of the family and the company continue along parallel lines, and the experience in grape growing and wine making have had continuity with all the generations managing the company.
