Girolamo Russo- Winery situated on the side of the Famous Volcano, Mount Etna

The Girolamo Russo winery is situated on the side of the famous volcano, Mount Etna and covers 15 hectares of vineyards surrounded by hazel and olive groves. The vineyards belonging to the winery are all cultivated organically and all of the old saplings and new rows of plants are worked by hand, short pruning, ploughing, hoeing and binding used sulphur and copper. During the harvest in October, grapes are carefully hand selected and vinified separately to enhance the individual scents and colours.

Unique and Old Vineyards

The vineyards are mostly very old with some being over 100 years and their roots are planted in land that is extremely unique. The roots of the vines are embedded in many layers of sciara that have formed each time the great volcano has erupted over the millennia. Each sciara feeds the vines with different minerals essential for their growth.

Volcanic Mountain Slopes

The San Lorenzo vines lie on the low mountain slopes of the volcano where the vineyards grow on newer lava flows, which form young and more porous soils. The Feud vines are grown where the microclimate is more affected by the winds from the Veldemone and the Feudo di mezzo vines are planted near Passopisciaro and extend over a shelf interposed between two lava flows that create a deeply porous soil.

The most popular wines of Girolamo Russo are the Nerina, the Etna Rosato, the ‘a Rina, the Feudo, the San Lorenzo and the Feudo di Mezzo.

All are easy drinking and popular both domestically and internationally.
