Ciro Biondi

About

The winery Biondi is based in the region of Etna that covers around 17,000 square meters of land. The winery is a tribute to the dedication and hard work and known for the cultivation of the grapes. The territory has volcanic soil and red pumice and offers a beautiful scenic view. This particular soil gives the wines all the nutrients from the ground to absorb. The winery was founded in 1600 and the three original vineyards are still in existence and currently taken care of by the present owners. At the end of the 19th century, Biondi winery was established and conducted an incredible expansion in the early 1900s. The commitment and passion for producing wines can be traced back to Salvatore Biondi, along with his brother Cirino and another producer. The reputation of the wines of Mount Etna, the enormous active volcano that dominates the north-eastern corner of Sicily, has shot up in the last few years.

It is now known as one of the best wine-producing areas in Italy. Ciro Biondi’s family has owned vineyards in this area since at least 1800, and first sold bottled wine under their label a century ago. The modern iteration of the Biondi winery began in 1999. Barrel storage is in the little old cellar of the family house in the center of Trecastagni. At the moment, the wines grown and produced on the north side Etna, such as Passopisciaro and Terre Nere, are among the best known. Historically, the south side was better known than the north. The winery offers four different types of white and red wines.
