About the wine maker

The Rapitalà estate was developed in the early 1970s by Frenchman Hugues Bernard de la Gatinais and his wife Gigi Guarrasi. This included the reconstruction of her family’s cellars that were destroyed by the Belice Valley earthquake in 1968.

French grapes were planted alongside local varietals on the estate’s 225 hectares, which supplies all their requirements on an area which slopes down towards Alcomo on the north-east tip of Sicily.

The vineyards are on gently undulating hills between 300 and 600 metres above sea level; the altitude is important as the cooling sea breezes maintain a relatively long ripening season increasing the quality of the grapes.

Today, Hugues and Gigi’s son Laurent runs the estate, maintaining his parents’ passion for producing high quality wines using a terroir-focused approach.
