At the end of the 1800’s, Giuseppe Benanti, grandfather of Dr. Giuseppe Benanti, began the production of wines on one of his father old farms on the slopes of Mount Etna in Viagrande, Catania. During his study about the Etnean soil, Giuseppe, also investigated particular clones of indigenous vines and new oenological techniques to reproduce ancient fragrances. As a result of this study, unique wines recreating old flavours and taste have been produced keeping them intact over the years. “Wines of strong personality is what Benanti wants to develop, always driven by respect for places and terroirs”.
