Antichi Vinai, the Winery at the Foot of Mt. Etna

The Antichi Vinai Winery locates on Mount Etna, in the territory of Passopisciaro, in Castiglione di Sicilia. The history of Antichi Vinai dates back to 1877. For four generations, the Gangemi family has been working with passion and dedication to enhance the production of Sicilian indigenous vines. The winery has a history of hundred years of working among the lush vineyards that are standing on the slopes of Etna.

Etna as the Fertile Garden of Eden

Etna and its surrounding area is one of the most fertile and charming enological territories that Sicily can offer. The vineyards, in which the owners of Antichi Vinai Winery grow rare vines, extend up to Northern Etna, North-East Etna, and Southern Etna.

Experience Wines from Unique Autochthonous Grape Varieties

Antichi Vinai Winery has implemented technical advancements, in combination with traditional methods of wine production. Despite all the modern techniques, two things at Antichi Vinai remained unchanged. First, the estate only grows indigenous varieties of grape. Secondly, the Gangemi family has always remained true to its origins: the vines come from Etna and Sicilian grapes. They cultivate a wide range of vines, including Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, and Carricante. With the use of rare autochthonous grape varieties, Antichi Vinai Winery produces a rich quality of red and white wines. They are also certified producers of blue-ribbon rosé and sparkling wines.
