About the Winery
Located on the island of Lipari off the Northern coast of Sicily, the Tenuta di Castellaro estate and winery was founded in 2005 with the goal of relaunching the winemaking traditions of these volcanic lands. Time has preserved this unique island landscape with extreme care, and Tenuta di Castellaro safeguards vast agricultural and natural areas which surround its vines with a radical environmentally sustainable commitment in both its viticultural and winemaking practices tot enhance the beauty of their site.
With strictly narrow albarello vine management there is no possibility for any mechanization in the vineyards. In the cellar, which is subterranean and zero impact, during the day the solar chimneys give enough lighting that there’s no need to turn on the electricity. A tower of the winds exploits the strong winds and a thermo-labyrinth keeps the temperature constant all the time. The wine is racked by gravity as the cellar has been built on three levels.
