Maugeri is the wine-growing project of an Etnean family, who have returned to their home district to make wine once more. The unbroken line of more than 2.8 km of lava dry-stone walling borders the 7 hectares of the property, an amphitheatre of fertile volcanic soil, in a close embrace with the Mediterranean landscape.
Three professional women, who through the wine give expression to the intimate relationship between the calling of the land and their family values linked to environmental and social sustainability.
Sea breezes also benefit the dense natural undergrowth, promoting the wealth of native biodiversity beneath the vines. The turquoise line of the sea borders this vineyard and dominates the view.
On the one side is the oak wood, on the other the outline of the craters, where in the mornings, the first signs of life from the volcano appear.
The local varieties are the stars of the labels: the Carricante (in purity), whose chosen place in the East is recognised by its mark as Etna Bianco Superiore, and the Nerello Mascalese, which produces an elegant rosé and Catarratto a fresh, fragrant white.
CONTRADA VOLPARE FRONTEBOSCO
Viticulture on Etna is a challenge and a gift at the same time. The very particular microclimate of the area and the fertility of the volcanic soil offer the vine an ideal setting and give the grapes unique characteristics. Thus the link between the wines of the Maugeri Winery and the land of Etna flows in the vineyard and is sublimated in the bottle.
