Living Cottanera: Etna and Its Pyramids

Strolling through the vineyards of our winery, you may come across pointed mounds of lava stone that stand out in the landscape and pique the curiosity of visitors. These are known as the pyramids of Etna and are one of the important elements that tell the story of the “Volcano.”

These pyramidal stone structures were created in the past by local farmers who piled up stones during the clearing of the land. 

To uncover the history of these fascinating structures together, during the experience dedicated to our pyramids, we will guide you through the vineyards and the history of Etna, with a visit to the lava stone pyramids nestled in our Iannazzo vineyard, in the Feudo di Mezzo district.

The tour concludes with a tasting of 5 wines: Etna DOC Rosso, Etna DOC Bianco, Etna DOC Rosato, Etna Bianco DOC Contrada Calderara, and Etna Rosso DOC Contrada Feudo di Mezzo.

Three hours of taste, history, and tradition to enjoy together.
