Villagrande's winery is located on the eastern slope of Mount Etna volcano that overlooks Taormina and the Ionian Sea at 700 metres above the sea level. The story of Villagrande's family takes roots already starting from the 17th century, where then, on Etna as in almost entire Italy, wine was made by blending all the grapes together without any distinction of colour or variety. And in 1869 Paolo Nicolosi built a new cellar for the winemaking and refinement, where the first wines from distinct processes for white and red grapes were born.
Today Marco Nicolosi as Wine Maker and Production Manager and Barbara Liuzzo as Director of Sales and Marketing continue to maintain their commitment on the territory with the aim of respecting and enhancing the heritage of the family and the peculiarities of the wine-growing area.
*Since the 1989 Villagrande's winery is certified in Organic by ECOGRUPPO Italia, as the goal of the company, family and staff is to share the natural heritage of Etna, transfer the love and devotion of a unique and special place. The intervention is limited on assisting the vine first and then the grapes on an emotional journey.
