Ungrafted vines, organic farming, centuries-old terraces of lava rock, all this is Palmento Costanzo.

Valeria and Mimmo Costanzo decided in 2011 to buy an old Palmento. In the area around Mount Etna, a palmento has always been a house where grapes were pressed in order to ferment the must obtained in this way into wine in large vats. Here, the grapes handed in through the uppermost window (with bare feet) were pressed on the ground, whereupon the must flowed through channels into lower-lying basins to finally be caught in the "Tino", the deepest tub, to ferment.

Desperate to revive an ancient winemaking tradition, the Costanzo family restored the Palmento in harmony with the ancient architecture of the area.

An exciting adventure began with the purchase of a handful of hectares in the Contrada Santo Spirito in the village of Passopisciaro in the Sicilian province of Catania on the north side of Mount Etna. In the present Palmento Costanzo has developed into a top producer who produces elegant and expressive wines with great knowledge of the natural conditions of the area and a mature craftsmanship. In the end, the wines are authentic children of the "Muntagna", as the volcano is affectionately called by its inhabitants.
