    Published on January 10, 2019

    Italian wine label, Donnafugata, distributed by Aspri Spirits in India,has flourished and revolutionized the style and the perception of Sicilian wine in the world. Aspri Spirits, India’s leading distributor of premium wines and spirits in India has developed one of the largest sales and distribution networks in India covering the length and breadth of the country, and supplies to the star category hotels, restaurants, bars, up-market wine shops and airlines.

    Sicily is Italy’s southernmost region and the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The classic Mediterranean climate is ideally suited for the production of wine grapes making, and is a home to a large array of grape growing opportunities since it is blessed with consistent bright sunshine and reliably moderate rainfall.

    Donnafugata wines are a fervent discovery of Sicily’s breathtaking universe, enveloping local and international grape varieties, with over 160 years’ worth of cumulative experience of over 5 generations. The name Donnafugata means ‘woman in flight’ and refers to Queen Maria Carolina of Bourbon, who in the early 1800s, sought refuge in Sicily, where Donnafugata vineyards stand today.
