On the highest active volcano in Europe
Where volcanic and Mediterranean wines come from
Our vineyards are located on the northern slope of Etna, between 730 m and 750 m a.s.l., an area characterized by little rainfall and cool and breezy summers, which contributes to producing healthy grapes.
Footprints of history imprinted on the wines
With its eruptions, Etna produces “sciare”, lava flows which, through long physico-chemical processes, give life to fertile and cultivable soils. Each sciara gives specific characteristics to the soil, making the wines from this micro-territory unique.
A wise interaction among soils, microclimates and vines
On Etna we grow native varieties that are representative of the area: Carricante, Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. The vineyards are bordered by terraces and drystone walls made of lavic stone (UNESCO World Heritage Status), alternating the espalier system of vine training with that of the Etna alberello. Thanks to an extreme balance among the vineyard and the winery, the Etna wines are characterized by a distinct mineral taste and elegance.
A volcano-goddess stands out on the label of Donnafugata's "Sul Vulcano" Etna White. Its intense colors, reds, yellows, iridescent blacks, are those of the highest active volcano in Europe. An ancient, powerful and feminine divinity: "the Mountain" as Etna is called by the locals. "Sul Vulcano" is a declaration of love: a pure and lively wine, with a distinct mineral taste, a wine that allows you to breathe in the energy of this unique place lying in the center of the Mediterranean.
