Volcanic Wine Growing Regions Part 1: Etna
Volcanic eruptions may not seem the most positive events for mankind, but for vine cultivation, it is one of the most ideal. Due to the amount of rich nutrients that are brought to the surface by magma from the earth’s core and the volcanic ash acting as an additional fertilizer, soils near a volcano are considered to be some of the most fertile.

Part 1 of the Volcanic Island Series will focus on wines produced on an island that is home to an active volcano, Mt. Etna. Explore wines made from the Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Carricante, and Catarratto grapes.
