On the north-east side of Mount Etna, in the area called Montelaguardia, at 2,400 feet above the sea level Destro’s vineyards span about 20 acres benefiting from a volcanic soil rich in minerals and a climate perfect for the production of outstanding “DOC Etna” wines. Since 2002 Antonino Destro and his son and daughter have been attending to this family business with passion and respect for the land that surrounds them. The cultivation is devoted to autochthonous grapes such as Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Mantellato, Carricante and Catarratto. Tradition and innovation are perfectly merged: the original site that dates back to 1897 has been restored and supplied with state-of-the-art equipment that guarantees an impeccable vinification process resulting in robust, full-bodied and harmonious wines.
