a Dream become Wine
ALL OF ETNA’S HISTORY AND RICHNESS IN GUIDO COFFA’S WINES
Guido Coffa’s Wines
Mount Etna’s vineyards and the organic wine produced at Monaci delle Terre Nere
Monaci’s rich vineyard will give you the opportunity to experience the estate’s truly organic wine tasting.
We till the land the way our fathers used to do : we use our hands! We don’t use any pesticides, fungicides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. We highly value wild weeds which contribute to the oxygenation and regeneration of the vineyard land. We use the clone of the local vine varieties, and together with Etna DOC, we produce wine from the so called “uve reliquie” (relic grapes) or pre-phylloxera vineyards. Grape harvest is carried out manually and implies a double step selection of the best grapes, in the vineyard and later in the wine cellar.
the wines produced on the volcano are among the best in the world
Etna is the third most important Italian region for wine production, thanks to the extraordinary variety of its lands, its micro-climates and the amazing quality of its wine.
The oenological production of the region is characterized by the one-of-a-kind conditions of the land and by the local viticulture techniques: the volcanic soil, the vines growing up to 900m above sea level, and the local varieties of vine, both red and white. Among the red wines we find Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, while some of the white ones are Carricante and Catarratto.
