Trinchero Family Estates (TFE) has announced that Sicily’s Tenuta Regaleali will be partnering with TFE as the portfolio’s sales and marketing partner in the United States. Beginning in January 2022, TFE will distribute, market and sell 13 wines ranging in suggested retail price from $14 to $200, including the notable Rosso del Conte – one of Sicily’s most collected single-vineyard wines that was first produced in 1970.
“The Tasca family is one of the foremost winemaking families in Sicily and leaders in sustainability,” said Bob Torkelson, president and chief executive officer of Trinchero Family Estates. “We look forward to working with them on their flagship estate, Tenuta Regaleali, to further grow the reputation and success of these great wines in the U.S. market.”
Tenuta Regaleali has produced wine in the heart of Sicily since 1830, and is led today by Alberto Tasca d’Almerita, the eighth-generation chief executive officer who oversees the company’s five Sicilian estates including the historic Tenuta Regaleali comprised of 1,400 acres and spanning elevations from 1,400 feet to 2,700 feet. The Tasca family has prioritized company-wide sustainability and is recognized for their impressive environmental efforts on an international scale. The storied Regaleali estate has allowed them to be extraordinary cultivators and caretakers of Sicilian agriculture, from indigenous varietals to experimental vineyards.
“I’m proud to embark on this new partnership with Trinchero Family Estates in the U.S. market,” commented Alberto Tasca d’Almerita, chief executive officer of Tasca d’Almerita. “From the start, we recognized like-minded values between our family and the Trinchero family, both as producers and as independent families. We uphold similar values in business including company longevity and competence of our teams, and we are confident that we share our investment in sustainability and commitment to the next generation. Our shared values will undoubtedly strengthen our partnership as we begin this next chapter in the U.S.”
The largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily offers remarkable diversity of topography and soils. The Tasca family and their estates have been instrumental in elevating the reputation for Sicilian wines worldwide, and the partnership between Trinchero Family Estates and Tenuta Regaleali will help build further appreciation for one of Sicily’s finest estates and its distinguished portfolio of wines.
