ABOUT BENANTI 

At the end of the 1800s, Giuseppe Benanti began the production of wines on one of his father’s old farms along the slopes of Mount Etna at Viagrande (Catania). In 1988, Dr. Giuseppe Benanti revived the family's old passion, with an extensive and selective study of the Etnean soils highly devoted to viticulture. He also studied clones of indigenous vines and new oenological techniques to reproduce ancient aromatics using the most modern practices of vinification, in a perfect union of history with reality. From this five-year study, he produced wines of unique character reflecting nuances of the history and keeping them intact over time.

The wines have a strong personality, and they carry the Benanti family’s culture and passion for wine, always driven by respect for the terroir. Benanti is in a market range of high quality, and the request for their wines is always increasing. These wines are household-names throughout Italy and abroad, and they are attested by many awards given annually by the most important national and international judged competitions.
