The property Terrazze dell’Etna (Terraces on the Etna) stretches from 650 to 850 meters above sea level and brushes up against the natural Etna Park: it was acquired and framed in 2008 by Nino Bevilacqua, a Palermitan engineer deeply in love with his homeland. His passion for Sicily has induced him to rediscover and restore an ancient and characteristic agricultural estate, purchasing numerous small plots of land which shape an amphitheatre of terraces where vineyards are cultivated. Today the property is made up of terraced land and small stonewalls running along the vineyards and woods of oak and chestnut trees. The small stonewalls mark off the territory where the Nerello Mascalese, a historical local vineyard cultivation, the Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir are being grown taking nourishment from the fertile land of the Etna, the very symbol of Sicily throughout the world. The project started with the supervision of the enologist Riccardo Cotarella and with a very precise purpose: to obtain, with this 36 hectares property, the highest quality in the full respect of the land. Refinement and excellence at all stages of the production chain are the distinctive force of the Terraces on the Etna: the ancient manual expertise used in the past for the harvest process is today combined with state-of-the-art technology in order to produce wines with a unique personality.
