‘Contrade dell’Etna’- change of location

‘Contrade dell’Etna’- change of location

winery of A. Graci

images‘Contrade dell’Etna’ ,the annual sicilian wine event on Mount Etna created by Andrea Franchetti, Etnean wine producer with his roots in Toscany has been held at his winery in Passopisciaro, contrada Guardiola since 2008. 2014 marks the change of  location. This year’s meeting of wine lovers and all the producers of wine from Etna is going to take place in another winery, not distant from the former one- the winery of Alberto Aiello Graci. Graci’s property is in the same town of Passopisciaro but on a different ‘contrada’,  Feudo di Mezzo, where the producer owns an old and ample ‘palmento’ , recently refurbished. The date of the event has been established for the 14 April 2014.

  1. Perché?, omettere di nominare il comune “città del vino” nel quale si è svolto l’evento.
    Passopisciaro è solo una frazione del comune di Castiglione di Sicilia, che assieme alle altre tre frazioni a monte Solicchiata, Rovitello e Verzella, formano gran parte del territorio “Etna D.O.C.” Di Castiglione di Sicilia.
    Distinti saluti. Giuseppe Lupo.

    • There is no reason to omit the name. Let’s say it: CASTIGLIONE DI SICILIA, ‘Città del vino’!
