Eastern Sicily: 83 terraces, stretching between Contrada Praino and Contrada Volpare, through the pathways of the Milo forest, 700 m above sea level, on the eastern slopes of Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe.

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.

Renato remains a child of the 1960s, knowing every corner of the estate, with his children Carla, Michela and Paola accompanying him in every decision.

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.
The breezes blowing in from the Ionian Sea help the grapes flourish, keeping them healthy, dry and fresh. In summer, the leaves dance with a continuous, delicate movement, visible from the shade of century-old palm trees.

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.

The vineyard looking onto Mount Etna is the highest part of our Estate. The volcano makes its presence felt here with a white cloud hanging above the summit: sometimes snow, sometimes smoke.

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.
Native varieties, with no modifications, making a positive choice to respond to the call of this piece of land, for the “white”. This is, in brief, the wine-making philosophy of Maugeri.

The local varieties are the stars of the labels: the Carricante, whose chosen place in the East is recognised by its mark as Etna Bianco Superiore, and the Nerello Mascalese, which produces an elegant rosé.

Etna, the volcano: energy that is renewed.
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.
