My vineyards are located at the foot of Mt. Etna, between 600 and 1,200 metres above sea level, on the northern and north-western slopes. This is a mysterious and special place, a unique ecosystem with its own remarkable climatic variability and a variegated landscape teeming with life.
For the past 2000 years, people here have been growing vineyards in small plots of land reclaimed from the mountain, living in symbiosis with the volcano and adapting to the power and unpredictability of its elements. This is slow and ancient work, carried out by hand with toil, passion, and respect.
