Here’s a bit more about Tenuta Rapitala:
Tenuta Rapitalà represents the foundation of Sicily, a marriage of cultures that creates its own unique identity. At Rapitala, the originality and power of Sicilian terroir blend with the elegant style of French winemaking. In 1968, the French-born Count Hugues Bernard de la Gatinais, and his wife, Gigi Guarrasi from Palermo, inherited this estate from the Guarrasi family after it was destroyed by an earthquake. The winery was soon rebuilt and vineyards were replanted to include not only indigenous varieties, but beloved French varieties as well. At the forefront of the quality revolution in Sicily, Rapitala was one of the very first producers on the island to offer estate bottled wines, starting with the 1976 vintage.
