Trinchero Family Estates (TFE), St. Helena, Calif., announced that Tenuta Regaleali is partnering with TFE as the portfolio's sales and marketing partner in the United States, effective immediately. 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. 

The partnership between Trinchero Family Estates and Tenuta Regaleali is an important one that complements a growing collection of like-minded family-owned Italian wineries including Ceretto, Famiglia Cotarella and San Polo with whom TFE has partnered in recent years, the companies say.

“The Tasca family is one of the foremost winemaking families in Sicily and leaders in sustainability,” said Bob Torkelson, president and CEO of Trinchero Family Estates, in a statement. “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 CEO 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,” said Alberto Tasca d'Almerita, CEO 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.”
