Baglio Vajarassa Wine
The Baglio Vajarassa has its own wine, which was produced naturally from the grapes of the vines that grow around the estate.
Grillo - the typical dry white wine
The Grillo grape is an original, old native white grape variety with yellowish medium to large, spherical berries with firm skin and fruity berry. It is very robust and can withstand the hot climate. Therefore, it probably has a much higher sugar content than other white grapes, as well as a special aromatic taste. Not all soils are suitable for this grape variety. Therefore, it is mainly found only around Marsala. The grape variety is one of the approved DOC wines of Sicily, which proves its high quality, but Grillo wines are relatively affordable. The Grillo is a dry white wine with a pale yellow color. Its aroma is intense and rich in fruity notes, such as lemon and orange and a freshness that spreads round and full-bodied. Some wine connoisseurs describe the bouquet as flowery, some recognize pear or almonds. Grillo wines usually have a fairly high alcohol content (sometimes even over 16 per thousand) and can therefore be stored well and long (sometimes several decades). The Grillo goes perfectly with the Italian cuisine.
Catarratto Grillo - the dry white wine blend
Also, the Catarratto Bianco is a widespread vine in the province of Trapani. It has large, compact grapes and small berries with a thick shell. The Catarratto is usually blended with the Grillo, the result is a full-bodied wine. The high acid content positively influences the aromatic and aromatic freshness. One senses a scent of white flowers.
Nero D'Avola - the dry red wine from Sicily
The dark, almost black Nero D'Avola grapes are a typically Sicilian and very noble strain. Depending on the growing area their taste varies. In the areas around Marsala they are more fruity and sweeter. The wine has a strong, dark red color and its taste reveals the strong sunlight on Sicily. One senses aromas of cherry, brambles, cassis and even pepper, cedar and leather. The wine is very pleasant and tastes on many occasions.You can taste all wines on the spot. Just ask Salvatore for a wine tasting.

The history of Baglio Vajarassa
Due to its central location in the Mediterranean, Sicily has always been of great importance. For seafaring and trade, the port cities of Sicily were a strategically important base. This made Sicily a sought-after destination for conquerors who after a successful conquest often stayed on the island, mingling with the local population and leaving their mark on the culture. Sicily was mostly governed from afar by the respective conquering nation. The island was rarely politically independent. Between the 16th and 18th centuries, Sicily was dominated by Spain. The population had a high grain requirement. Thus, the Sicilian government granted the "Licentia populandi" - a permission for selected nobles to set up, settle and farm small village settlements in the then uncultivated land.
At that time, the chosen barons built "Baglios" (or Sicilian "Bagghius") - these were certainly fortified farms with a large courtyard on a large estate. On this farm lived the landowner himself, but also the farmers who worked here either seasonally or all year round. Therefore, the Baglio had to have numerous shelters for its inhabitants, but also stables for the animals and deposits for grain. The influential Agata family was known for its wine production (especially Grillo) and owned the entire coastal area of the Spanish part of the island. The family was therefore nicknamed "Vajarassa" - literally "fat cow", which was often given to wealthy people. So the Baglio Vajarassa, built in the early 800s, got its name. Until 1990, the Baglio was home to wine production until the villa became a guest house. Today, direct descendants Marina Agate and her husband Salvatore welcome you to Bed & Breakfast Villa Baglio Vajarassa.Visit the Baglio Vajarassa
