About the maker
Eduardo Torres Acosta, a young winemaker from the Canary Islands, has worked with the likes of Ariana Occhipinti before building up his own patch of Sicily, with his wines being of the most miniscule production and highly sought after.
Eduardo now manages a total off 4.5 hectares of vines, spanning white varieties like Catarratto, Grecanico and Carricante and reds like Nerello Mascalese, Alicante and Garnacha. Two single vineyards are produced, Pirrera and Quota N. Pirrera comes from a single contrada located at 850 meters in altitude and the name of the vineyard, Pirrera, refers to the volcanic stones which were extracted from a quarry during a lava flow in 1614. Most of his parcels were restored, slowly bringing the vines back to health in the most natural means, yet they are incredibly old and now producing some incredible fruit.See the Eduardo Acosta collection here
