“Experience is not what happens to a man: it is what a man does with what happens to him”. Aldous Huxley
The “experiences” take shape in paths connected with wine, Etna and the story of the Costanzo family to tell the Palmento Costanzo project.
Experiences combining the taste with the artistic and landscape beauty of Etna Doc wines.
Visits can be chosen in Italian and English (visits with translator only by agreement) and they are held several times a day. Visits are only on reservation and can be done with other visitors (groups of about 20 people).
The Palmento Costanzo visit is a sharing experience, conceived as a journey into the world of wine and Mount Etna.
An emotional journey to get closer to thearea, to know the history of the Costanzo family and the production philosophy, to understand how a wine is born and to observe the innovative bio-architecture of the cellar.
The path of the visit flows between the interior and exterior of the palmento, allowing to discover also its most striking and unusual views, admiring closely the majestic Ovum barrels of the craftsmen of Taransaud.
We proceed to the cellar, where it is reproduced the traditional production process for “gravity”, and for the vineyards with typical Etna trees lying on chestnut poles, among which there are also prefilled plants, placed on more than one hundred terraces which date back to the northern slope of Mount Etna.
It is also possible to choose a tasting of 2/3 wines that represent our vineyard, add a taste of local specialties, a lunch or a dinner with seasonal products typical of Etna territory.
