Description

Discover the wonders of the world of wine at Ansaldi Winery, the heart of Baglio Donnafranca, located at the centre of the wine road, between Marsala and Trapani.
Its history starts in the 19th century, when the Baglio was built by the Florio family and it was used mainly as a warehouse for their wine farm. After the World War II, it was sold and it became a ruin. In 2000 the Ansaldi family bought it and restored it.

Baglio Donnafranca's refined winery is the part of the building where the bottling and wine tasting can be experienced in the same environment. This is the “heart” of the Relais, where guests can admire the modern and efficient machinery as well as the wine cellar where the oak barrels reside.
The Ansaldi Winery is a fine example of the importance and long history of the territory’s tradition of winemaking. Visiting the winery is equivalent to taking a voyage through a true museum of wine. 
Visiting wine lovers can enjoy wine tours to discover the cultural values of the territory, wine tastings of organic wines, including the special Perpetuo wine, participate in Sicilian cooking classes and food pairings.
All the Baglios are pieces of a story that has been completely forgotten for a long time and Paola, Giacomo's wife will guide you on a trip through centuries of history in order to discover their identity and culture.
