Etna flows through the lifeblood of the Cottanera vineyards which, with its frontier viticulture, represents one of the most interesting realities of the Italian and international wine scene. Those of Cottanera are vineyards that rise on lava rock, 700 meters above sea level, along the northern slopes of the volcano and which twist with the breath of Etna, becoming the mirror of a unique, precious, evocative and fascinating territory . The name, chosen by the company, is linked to an ancient rural village that limits the family vineyards along the bank of the Alcantara river. Cottanera is a jewel of 100 hectares all combined, of which 65 are under vineyards.

"To look to the future we cannot fail to take into account the education we have received. The land, as my father taught me, is a priceless asset, because it is the principle of everything and of what we will be", this is the company philosophy that Guglielmo repeated and that he wanted to pass on to his children.

He was the first to bet on the value of those black lands. We are in the nineties when Guglielmo, together with his brother Enzo, decides to convert what was a hazelnut grove into a large vineyard; the first plantings involved international vines, then, over the years, the native, historic Etna vines were added: Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccino and Carricante.

Today, after the passing of Guglielmo, Cottanera is led by his brother Enzo and the children of its founder: Mariangela, Francesco and Emanuele.
