GENERAZIONE ALESSANDRO – SICILY – ITALY
Generazione Alessandro is the project of three cousins, Benedetto, Anna and Benedetto Alessandro, who, together with their fathers, have been running the family winery in the province of Palermo for several years. Strengthened by their path in the Alessandro di Camporeale company and after specializing in the wine sector, they decide to develop a new project on Etna, to give life to wines with a strong identity.
The company extends for about ten hectares on the north-east side of the volcano. The vineyards are located on plots which, although very close together, have different geomorphological and microclimatic characteristics, profoundly influencing the yield of the grapes. The ancient millstone houses the winemaking cellar.
