About Davide Bentivegna

I am a vintner and enthusiast about nature, this is my dream come true to restore an ancient rural area witha stunning view and amazing garden located strategically close to the vineyards and the sea.

Come and share counbtry life with us and taste our natural wines olive oil and jams

Davide Bentivegna purchased this farmhouse in 2008

Why Davide Bentivegna chose Presa

We are a young agricultural enterprise located on the slopes of Mount Etna. We believe in a conception of wine that

is above all humanistic; we promote a responsibility towards the environment, the community, our customers, and

the future. Our contrade, or sub zones, are Presa, Linguaglossa, Passopisciaro and Randazzo, and are all based on the

northeastern side of the volcano. Each contrada is treated separately, as each parcel has a distinct lava stratifiation,

mesoclimate, and exposition. Th resulting wines are a panoply of various expressions of Etna’s terroir.

Th vineyards are trained in alberello style, or bush trained, an ancient method traditionally used on Etna. Th vines

are planted on land that is terraced with dry-stone walls constructed with the local volcanic stones so omnipresent

on Etna’s slopes. Th close proximity of the vines (6,000 - 9,000 plants per hectare) creates firce competition and

forces the roots to point downward in the volcanic soil in search of water and nutrients. Th altitude of the vineyards

varies from 600 to 1000 meters above sea level. Th extreme weather conditions and drastic diurnal shifts (an average

of 16°C between day and night) result in wines of great phenolic profie, complexity and longevity.

In the vineyards we use only a Bordeaux mixture (copper sulphate), and all fermentations are spontaneous, using only

indigenous yeast colonies. Th wines are neither fied nor fitered. When possible, we avoid the addition of sulphites,

but in rare cases we allow ourselves to add a maximum of 30mg/lt.

In addition to wine growing, we farm numerous varieties of olives and fruit that are indigenous to Etna. We produce extra virgin olive oil and many diffrent types of high quality jams.

We have a total of 19 hectares of

land: the vineyards, the winery, the cellar, and a traditional style agriturismo made from volcanic stone. It sleeps 14

people and is located in the beautiful village of Presa overlooking the sea and the city of Taormina
