About the maker
Alessandro, a young and inspired Italian natural winemaker of Sicily, is quickly becoming another synonymous name of those spearheading hands-off wine from the Etna island.
Alessandro looks after 7 hectares of organically managed vines, working strictly by hand. The vineyards are located in 2 areas, the first in Pietra Rinosa close to Alcamo in the north-western tip of Sicily, the soil is made of clay and the vineyards sit at 200m above sea level taking a large influence from the ocean. The second vineyards in Fastuchera are higher at 400 meters; the soil is calcareous producing more minerals driven and finer wines. He is strictly committed to growing and championing local varieties. Catarratto, Grillo, Nero D’avola and Nerello Mascalesse make up his repertoire. His style is unique and his wines are developing natural wine cult status around the world.See the Alessandro Viola collection here
