Annalisa Sagona can be defined as the “soul” of this special prize.

In the past her continuous curiosity was a precious source of important information in order to write up the list of prize winners. She was a very nice person: her personality was a mix of knowledge and kindness. Unfortunately she died few months ago. Among the other Best in Sicily prizes we want to include a special one recalling her name. In fact, Cronache di Gusto wants to recognize this prize to a person that is distingueshed in Sicilian wine and food sector and whose fame, passes over regional boundaries.
