This farming facility was founded in 1830, when the brothers Lucio and Carmelo Mastrogiovanni Tasca bought the Regaleali estate, located in Sclafani, in the province of Palermo.
Villa Tasca, once called Villa Camastra, dates back to the mid-XV century: located on the edge of the historic centre of Palermo, is surrounded by luxuriant palms, almond trees and acacias – it was also celebrated by a mesmerized Richard Wagner, who wrote the third act of “Parsifal” during his stay there, in 1881.

In the XX century, Count Giuseppe Tasca, wisely paid very special attention to the local vineyards and wines, striving to obtain high-quality products; he, therefore, adopted, espalier vines, reducing the yield per acre and enhancing native grapes like Inzolia and Nero d’Avola – without neglecting many international ones, such as Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Today, the company is managed by Count Lucio and his two sons, Giuseppe and Alberto.
Over the years, severlìal new estates have been added to the original one in Regaleali, such as Capofaro (in the Aeolian Archipelago), Tascante (on Mount Etna), the historic Whitaker crops (on the ancient island of Mozia), and Sallier de La Tour, in Monreale. The owners of Tasca Conti d’Almerita, in fact, has always wanted to enhance the native grape varieties and the very territories with the best wine-growing vocation.

Each vineyard has its own productive features and growing on different soils in several microclimates, they offer a long harvest season (from mid-August to late October, early November). There are “Rosso del Conte” grapes, Nero d’Avola varieties – later put in chestnut barrels, “Regaleali Bianco”, “Diamante”, “Golden Wedding”, “Leone d ‘Almerita”, some sparkling, and many assorted native types.

This “SOStain”-certified company (according to a proactive and voluntary program that increase the sustainability of viticulture), strives to harmonize and deal with strict organic farming techniques, increasing sustainability and enhancing the surrounding territory. This painstaking and thorough way of growing vines and making high-quality wines does also mitigate the impact of such activities, protecting the local flora and fauna, as well as the precious biodiversity and local traditions. Tasca Conti d’Almerita has also joined the international “Water & Carbon footprint” pilot project, measuring the sustainability performance of the wine sector, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
