Tell Me About This Vineyard….

Located on the feet of Mount Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano, where the land is enriched with volcanic eruptions, the air smells of citrus & gardenia and the views are jaw-dropping to say the least. The terroir here is rare and unique, it’s an overall mix of decomposed lava, ash and sand, but also close to the sea, all of which contribute to the intense flavours of the 3 special Etna wines produced by Manuela and her husband Fabio. The wines are rich & explosive, just like the volcano, they taste earthy, minerally yet pleasantly acidic. Tenute Ballasanti is a true reflection of Sicily; beauty, family, intensity, love, mountain air, sun and sea.
