Cottanera vineyards grow on lava stone, 700m above sea level, on the northern slopes of the volcano. Cottanera is a pearl of 100 hectares, of which 65 hectares are covered in vines. The vineyards and winery are in Castiglione di Sicilia, in the province of Catania, where all phases of production are carried out, from harvesting to bottling.

To create a centre of modern, innovative viticulture, aimed above all at improving quality in the vineyards on Mt. Etna: this is the challenge the Cambria family have every intention of winning. The production philosophy is to grow well-balanced grapes, in limited quantity, from the winery itself, to obtain the aromatic uniqueness that so well distinguishes these lands.

Discover the wines of the estate with a guided expert tour of the cellar. The tasting includes three regional wines: Barbazzale Bianco, Barbazzale Rosso and Etna DOC Rosato. The visit wouldn't be complete without a drop of our very own Cottanera olive oil, on a chunk of bread baked in a wood-fired oven. Enjoy the wines and drink in the beautiful panoramic view of the vineyard.

Highlights:

  • Panoramic view of the vineyard
  • Guided tour of the wine cellar
  • Wine tasting of 3 regional wines: Barbazzale Bianco, Barbazzale Rosso and Etna DOC Rosato
  • Wood-fired oven-baked bread with Cottanera olive oil
