Notes from Louis/Dressner Selections:

"Vinudilice translates to "Wine of the holm oak forest" in Sicilian dialect. The grapes come from the Bosco vineyard and are cultivated by hand and mule. The parcel is an ancient field blend of at least 10 red and white grapes. It is the only vineyard in the area, located in a wild and uncontaminated area rich in biodiversity. At 1200 meters elevation, it is the highest vineyard in Etna and perhaps all of Italy"

The I Vigneri project - named after a Sicilian Vintner’s Guild founded in 1435 - consists of 30 hectares of vines planted at 700 metres above sea level on the north side of Mount Etna near the town of Calderara. The project is led by Salvo Foti who works with a number of local growers to produce traditionally crafted, organic wines from old vines grown on volcanic and sandy soils. No herbicides or pesticides are used in the wine making process and all the grapes are hand-harvested. Made from 100+ year old vines
