The 2.5-hectare vineyard lies on the south eastern slopes of Mount Etna, on an ancient vineyard site with a pre-phylloxera heart on the steep slope of an old crater. Planted at approximately 8,000 plants per hectare, in the traditional alberello Etneo bush method, the vines produce a very limited yield. The climate is humid, with significant rainfall during winter and spring and strong diurnal temperature fluctuations, encouraging a gradual ripening process resulting in rich flavours, balancing acidity and aromatic complexity. The soils are black volcanic sands and rich in minerals. The vineyard is maintained with the utmost respect for the environment, without the use of pesticides and is in conversion to organic status.

This small, authentic boutique winery on Mount Etna, was established by Giuseppe "Peppino" Mulone in 1954. Santa Maria la Nave grows indigenous varieties such as Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio in an ancient vineyard with rich, fertile
volcanic soils. Passion and respect for the unique microclimate, along with artisanal vinification are at the heart of the Santa Maria La Nave project. Produced in small quantities, from dramatic surroundings, these are exquisite, food friendly wines.
