In our vineyards, lying in Mt. Etna’s best suited areas at elevations between 650 and 1,200 m above sea level, we treasure for the future what we have received as a gift from the past.
We restored the ancient lava stone terraces, the main landmarks of Etnean scenery, which help us by draining the rain water and offering the best possible ventilation to our vines.
All our vineyards are tightly planted with bush-trained vines, standing in the traditional quincunx pattern – 8,500 to 10,000 plants per hectare. We guard and take care of the old vines we found, many of them more than hundred years old, and with the same love we plant and raise the new ones, always respectful of the Etnean culture and traditions.
