Our quest for excellence in the vineyard and cellar also guides the winery’s philosophical and technical approach. Benanti Viticoltori wines are inscribed with character, authenticity and elegance, virtues that make them recognizable and memorable, avoiding ephemeral novelties and fashions of the moment.
The “know-how to make wine” has its roots in time and territory. The vines are indigenous; the grapes are harvested by hand; the high planting densities are combined with low yields; the winemaking, careful and prudent, takes place with the help of autochthonous yeasts that have been selected in the vineyard and cellar. Making wine on Etna obliges a profound respect for the unique historical vocations on each flank of the volcano, and always allowing yourself to be guided by the territory and the inseparable centuries-old bond of vine and slope.
Integrity and respect for the environment
We were born on Etna, we are a native family that respects and protects our volcano. The emotions and Etna character found in every glass of Benanti wine are the result of our deep love for the territory, which has guided our work as winemakers for generations, from safeguarding our traditional landscape to our daily commitment in the vineyard and the preservation of our bottled wines.
