For centuries grapes of Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Carricante and Catarratto have been grown here. Today we farm organically and all the labor is done manually abiding traditions which are our core values.
Over one hundred terraces - a long series of dry stone walls – along a volcano rising from 600 to 800 metres above the sea level host our old vines which are bush-trained on typical chestnut poles. This unique land surrounds the ancient millstone winery that has been brought back to life thanks to a conservative restoration project based on the principles of bioarchitecture.
This is our home, where our Etna DOC wines are born: an authentic expression of the largest active volcano in Europe.
