Etna Bianco Moganazzi Volta Sciara 2015 Le Vigne di Eli

The vineyards of Eli are located on the northern slopes of Etna, and was founded in 2006 by Marco de Grazia, owner of the much more famous Tenuta delle Terre Nere.

“Creating Le Vigne di Eli – Marco says – was simple and easy as an act of love, which I did towards my daughter Elena (Eli), at that time still newborn. It happened in 2006: I was first offered a small vineyard, then another, both in exceptional cru: Feudo di Mezzo and Moganazzi-Voltasciara. I bought them and because these lands were so small and so beautiful, they reminded me of my little one, Elena. In this way, Le Vigne di Eli was born “.

“Using Elena’s drawings as a wine label was a consequential idea – Marco explains to us – because I have always loved his drawings. And in the same way, in a completely natural way, the impulse came that this “child property” contributed to helping the less fortunate children. In fact, a substantial part of the profits is donated to the Meyer Pediatric Hospital in Florence. In this way, the project for children reaches its full completion. “
