An interesting Red from the Slopes of volcanic Mount Etna

Crush on Etna Header

Something different to serve at your next dinner party!

Mount Etna, on the island of Sicily, is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. There have been many eruptions in the last decade.


A Crush on Etna Jean-Marc Espinasse, of Domaine Rouge-Bleu in southern France, was so inspired by a holiday in Sicily that he decided to embark on a collaboration with local winemaker Ciri Biondi to make a wine from grapes grown on the slopes of the volcano.


The soil on the volcano slopes (600 metres above sea level) is poor and ideally suited for vineyards. The grape variety here is Nerello Mascalese, which Jean-Marc compares to Pinot Noir. 


The grapes were hand harvested, partly destemmed and vinified with natural yeasts and low sulphur. Ageing was in two neutral 500 litre barrels for almost a year.

Only 1320 bottles were produced of which 36 came to Australia. 


This unusual and rare wine is in stock and priced at $60.00 a bottle. Buy a Case of 12 bottles and pay for 11.
