We have chosen organic farming, faithful to the culture and practices of the winemakers who have worked these lands of Etna for centuries, starting with the terraces. And we dedicate ourselves to the exclusive cultivation of native grape varieties, to keep close to the most identity essence of Etna wines, also thanks to the collaboration of our oenologist Luca D’Attoma.

The quality of our wines is born from this choice: the DeAetna - a range of white, rosé and red wines faithful expression of the territory and its varieties – and the Contrada Blandano line – the white wine from Carricante and Catarratto and the red wine from Nerello Mascalese and Cappuccio – that contain the mature and wise essence of our oldest head trained vines.
the terroir
Very often we hear that, from a viticulture point of view, Etna is not Sicily: it is actually an ‘island into the island’ and a ‘North in the South’.
The combination of a few elements make Etna wines unique, both in Sicily and all over the world:
The windy climate, characterized by the strong daily temperature variations, given by the proximity of the mountain to the sea, that reduces humidity and the risk of potential vine diseases.
The light, the abundance of sunny days, guarantees a perfect maturation of the grapes.
The volcanic soil, rich in iron, copper, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus, with traces of calcium and nitrogen, has a high draining power, which allows to grow healthy and dry vineyards
The historicity of the vineyards, often dating back to before the appearance of phylloxera
The native varieties, cultivated for centuries on all sides of the volcano.

deAetna

The name DeAetna derives from the title of a lain pamphlet dated 1494,
that relates the travel on top of the Volcano by Pietro Bembo.

contrada Blandano

To produce these wines we only use the grapes coming from our ancient vines, a careful selection coming from our head-trained
rows, that is then slowly and attentively aged.

Rasola

An ancestral wine, a tribute to the land and to the family. Red and white grapes,
spontaneous fermentation, no filtering. Overwhelming wine character.
