Our farming philosophy is based on our acceptance of the fact that man will never be able to understand nature's full complexity and interactions. We therefore choose to concentrate on observing and learning the movements of Mother Earth in her various energetic and cosmic passages and prefer to follow her indications as to what to do, instead of deciding ourselves. Consequently this has taken us to avoiding all possible interventions on the land we cultivate, including any treatments, whether chemical, organic, or biodynamic, as these are all a mere reflection of the inability of man to accept nature as she is and will be. The divine ability to understand the 'Whole' was obviously not given to man as we are only a part of this complex and not god himself. Though, evermore man pretends to be god, altering nature's delicate balance, for reasons of productivity, with all due consequences... Our products are the result of this philosophy and our hands, with team. Wines and olive oils which reflect ultimate territorial identity and mineral depth carry the name Magma®. These are single cru and vintage wines and olive oils from various superb terroirs at 650-980 metres altitude in the North Valley of Mount Etna, Sicily. Magma® Rosso is fermented from our best Nerello Mascalese grapes; the golden Magma® Bianco is produced from ancient white varietals. Magma® Olio di Oliva is pressed from perfectly ripe San Benedetto olives.
