In 2019 Loredana Vivera took over the family winery in the Martinella district ("Cru Martinella") of Mount Etna, on the north-eastern side of the volcano. She realized her dream to bring in the winery and in her wines the Sicilian culture together with the beauty of Sicilian nature and the majesty of the volcano.
The estate has 50 hectares of vineyards and olive groves divided between three properties. 15 hectares in Martinella at 550-600 meters above sea level are planted to native grape varieties of Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Carricante, all organically grown. Etna’s mountain climate with large temperature differences between day and night, along with its volcanic soil, assist Loredana Vivera in creating her unique and elegant Etna wines.
The other wines include grapes sourced from the other property in Corleone, 27 hectares planted to both international varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Chardonnay) and local varietals such as Nero d’Avola, Catarratto and Insolia. A third property in Chiaramonte Gulfi near Ragusa is dedicated solely to the production of extra-virgin olive oil.
