Previously worked as a seasoned manager at a multinational company with no family vineyard, Davide’s encounter with wine is purely out of passion. After years of living and working abroad, Davide returned to his roots, the magnificent Etna region, and started Etnella winery in 2008. Trained in the caverns of Etna by experienced local growers and winemakers, Davide gradually evolved to has his own style, with his understanding of the terroir throughout years of working in the vineyards and in the cellar. Since the first vintage made in 2010, the core of his philosophy of winemaking reflects in the bottle: the traditional winemaking of Etna, the diversity of volcanic soil, thanks to the stratification of lava, as well as the microclimates of different contradas (cru). As a lover of nature, Davide never cease to preserve and protect the albarello old vines around Mount Etna. His never-ending quest recently brings him to the ancient fruit varieties of Etna, and here begins the journey of producing artisanal apple cider and extra virgin olive oil of the volcano.
