History tells us that Noah’s first act of reconciliation with the land after leaving the Ark at the end of the Great Flood was to plant a vineyard; a symbolic gesture, marking a marriage with the land, sealing a bond which was to give fruit: grapes and wine.
Tenuta di Castellaro winery is the achievement of an ambitious project, where passion and a dream come together in a perfect combination, creating unrivalled excellence. The ancient vine, grown organically in 30 hectares of vineyard, yields precious fruit, the basis for refined blends with a unique flavour, the pure expression of the volcanic terrain of Lipari and Etna, pristine locations that embraced us with their harsh natural environment.
Tenuta di Castellaro is a monument to landscape, art, architecture and technology, which entirely keeps faith with nature and traditions:
- the barrique cellar, completely underground and built in the local style, recounts different geological areas through its arches and pillars: 22,000 years of history create a magical environment where our vine is refined and aged in its oaken casks;
- the windcatcher tower, used by ancient populations since the X Century BC, has been built with state-of-the-art technologies: it comprises a chimney and a cooling labyrinth, which create a natural air-conditioning system;
- the landscape recalls to mind fragrances and flavours which generate unforgettable sensations;
- the sun, which at sunset plunges into the sea between Alicudi, Filicudi and Salina, provides the most romantic vision of what nature can offer.
