Davide Bentivegna was struck by vocation. He left his manager position to follow his dream to make wines that touch the soul. No previous experience or family land, all had to be created from scratch. From day one the approach was to an organic farming and natural wine making.
The adventure started in 2008 and the first wine, "Notti Stellate" etna rosso, was bottled in 2010 from the first company vineyard located in Contrada Galfina in Linguaglossa.
From then on the company grew acquiring more land and developing into a complex reality always keeping an artisan and sustainable approach guided by strong ethics.
The firm belief is a conception that is above all humanistic: promoting a responsibility towards the environment, the community, the customers, and the future.
Today Davide has created a solid team with a common objective: respect the land, respect each other and produce happiness.
"To allow friends and customers to experience this magical world of so called natural wine in the highest active Volcano of Europe, touristic activities were developed in order to benefit from the many influences and energy of the people that we welcome everyday in the etna vineyards, in our enoagriturismo and in our villa in Acicastello.."
