Making wine on Europe's largest active volcano doesn't come easy. Frequent changes in topography, elevation, and weather influence each vintage and every winemaker has an interpretation of the evolving volcanic landscape. This is part of what makes Etna so exciting. The wines are as inviting as the terrain. For millennia the mountain served as a backdrop in the development of Europe. Today, the UNESCO Heritage Site is a destination for the world. American wine expert Benjamin Spencer goes beyond the vines to explore the history and rebirth of the region that has everyone talking about Sicily.
"To me, Sicily has always been a magical place, full of unexpected encounters and serendipity. The New Wines of Mount Etna is all you need to make your own personal discoveries and create your own Etna story."
-- Susan Hulme, Master of Wine
