For a hundred and fifty years, the Nerello Mascalese has been the soul of the Gangemi family.
We persist in studying it to enhance excellent sparkling wines, experimenting with increasingly longer aging and delicate dosages. Our commitment and dedication are aimed at gifting you the purest and most sincere essence of the Volcano.

THE ORIGINS

HEIRS OF THE VOLCANO
SINCE 1877

We are Etna’s children and the Volcano is part of us. Our family has been connected to this land and its long history of top-quality, world-famous wines for over a hundred and forty years. We are what we do and we love producing wine in this unique, generous terroir. We trust in tradition with the passionate diligence of those who know and love the land but we also look to the future and its innovative technologies.

TRADITION AND INNOVATION

THE METHOD

We make wine traditionally in a unique microclimate that allows us to guarantee the sustainability of the products and the quality of the wines. We age our wines in large old wooden barrels housed in the lava rock, which you can see when you visit our winery. A classic method that welcomes the new, and tells the fascinating story of our profession and our art.

TREAT YOURSELF TO A THRILL

EXPERIENCES AND TASTINGS

We love to welcome guests and accompany them on exciting sensory experiences to discover the places, the work and the flavours of wines with ancient, deep roots. Wine is culture, and culture deserves to be safeguarded and valued. We are surrounded by a uniquely beautiful landscape where you can appreciate the continuity between winery and terroir, between the wine and the land that gives it birth.

FAITHFUL TO TRADITION

We only grow native varieties, offering selected blends that make the wines rich and age-worthy.
