The wine region of Etna is located in the northeastern province of Catania, Sicily. It is also located near the biggest active volcano in Europe Mt Etna. According to ancient Greek mythology, homegrown wine of this area was said to have enchanting powers for healing, relaxation and amusement. Situated in the northern, southern and eastern slopes of the volcano, at an altitude of 450 to 1100 above sea level, the wines produced from this area creates a harmonious blend of tastes like no other which makes it no surprise that the region of Etna has been receiving a lot of keen attention of wine critics and wine lovers over the past few years. Certain examples are incredible wines, that could come from no other place than the sandy, volcanic (and thus very fertile) soils around the volcano. The Etna DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) was first established in 1968, making it the first region in Sicily to receive the honor.

The climate of this volcanic region is with almost no rainfall in the summer but can be quite wet during the winter and autumn periods. The soil of Etna is volcanic, made up of lava, ashes and sand. This helps provide ample amounts of minerals and nutrients in the soils such as iron, copper, magnesium, phosphorus and others. The ruby colored red wines from this region are mostly blends of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio and the whites are produced from Carricante and Catarratto grapes.
