The fame of Marsala wine is due mainly to the British, who had already traded in Port, Madeira and Sherry products. In 1773 they docked in Marsala where they tasted this "nectar". They were completely mesmerised. By using production techniques similar to those used for the other sweet wines, a new product appeared on the market. This was the beginning of Marsala’s global adventure. In 1880 Paolo Pellegrino, a notary with a strong passion for grape growing, founded the company Cantine Pellegrino. In just a few years he succeeded in transforming the family company into one of the most important wineries in Marsala, keeping this leading position until today. Today Pellegrino has three operative units. The historical cellars in Marsala, Duca di Castelmonte winery in Cardilla and a third winery on the island of Pantelleria.
