Palmento Costanzo was founded in 2010 by the Costanzo family, who wanted to get closer to the land that witnessed their growth: the slopes of Mt. Etna. The family restored an artisanal way of working and a direct understanding of nature, which are embodied by elegant and expressive wines that are authentically born from the «Muntagna», as the Etna is fondly called by its inhabitants.
The adventure began following the purchase of a handful of hectares in Contrada Santo Spirito, located in Passopisciaro, in the province of Catania, on the northern region of the Etna. A centuries-old, ungrafted vineyard, one of the few that survived the phylloxera epidemic at the beginning of the ‘900 which destroyed most of the vineyards in Europe. And the restoration of the ancient Palmento made from lava stone: a remarkable proof of the key role played by viticulture within Etna production.
