Vigna di Paola

The island of Vulcano, to which Hephaestus, god of fire, bestowed both fertility and a unique microclimate. Vigna di Paola is located in the Gelso area in the south of the island. It is a wine that is characterized by a flavor profile which plays on the saline and sulfur notes native to this island, but also of flower and fruit typical of this variety. On the palate it is an explosion of flavor that persists until the final sip, a long-lasting taste.


A vineyard overlooking the sea with southern exposure, divided into two zones “above” and “below” the road. The Malvasia delle Lipari vines planted here in 2006 are characterized by low productivity and therefore a good fruit concentration.


A soil made of ash and fine, brown sands but also pumice, silicates, and metals.
