About Fischetti

Azienda Fischetti represents what winemaking on Etna is all about. Old vines, organic viticulture, low production and estate bottled wines produced from local varieties that have been hand picked from small vineyards…

Located on the edge of Castiglione di Sicilia on the north side of Mount Etna, this is a relatively new winery project. In 2007 the Fischetti family purchased the property from an ageing grower who had historically sold his fruit to other winemakers outside of the region and had no children interested in carrying his work on. It was a great opportunity and the potential of the site was no doubt clear.

Little has changed in the vineyards since 2007 and today they are still typical of a bygone age of winemaking on Etna; although only three hectares, the parcel is planted with a mix of local varieties, from Etna’s famous red grapes Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio to whites such as Carricante, Catarratto and even small amounts of the very rare Minella.
