BARONE DI VILLAGRANDE
At the beginning of the 18th century the Bishop of Catania gave to the Nicolosi Asmundo Family the task to turn the harsh fields of Etna from an “horrific and untamed place to a delicious garden”. Then in 1727 something happened, like in the fairytales. The Emperor Charles VI of Augsburg, King of Naples, bestowed Don Carmelo Nicolosi with the title of Baron of Villagrande.
The bond with the grapes becomes indissoluble, giving birth to the oldest vines cultivation story on these lands.
Today Marco Nicolosi as Wine Maker and Production Manager and Barbara Liuzzo as Director of Sales and Marketing continue to maintain their commitment on the territory with the aim of respecting and enhancing the heritage of the family and the peculiarities of the wine-growing area . The goal of the company, family and staff is to share the natural heritage of Etna, transfer the love and devotion of a unique and special place.
