The Winery Pappalardo was founded in 1930 in Nicolosi, a small town on the slopes of Mt Etna, where the volcanic soils of the Company’s vineyards located in the Etna DOC region allow the production of wines having an unmistakable and unique taste.
The last three generations of the Pappalardo family have managed directly the grape vine cultivation as well as the wine production, filling and marketing, and they keep on taking care of each production step with commitment and passion.
Our Company has chosen to cultivate local vines varieties such as Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio in our vineyards on Mt. Etna. Nero d’Avola, Frappato and Insolia have been implanted in our vineyards at Mazzarrone, while a remarkable area is being devoted to the new Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon implantations.
Our vines trained by the espalier or by the Sicilian alberello (bush) techniques, a favourable pedoclimatic conditions at our fields along with traditional cultivation methods and production techniques confer to our wines organoleptic characteristics, which make them unique and increasingly appreciated even by the most demanding palates.
