A visit to the Cavanera Etnea Resort & Wine Experience would not be complete without a visit to the Etna Wine Shop. Inside, the shop space is completely dedicated to Firriato wines. Among the Wine Shop displays it is possible to find wines produced on the Cavanera Etnea Estate, but it is also possible to buy wine from the entire world of Firriato.
For visitors who wish to have the complete sensory experience, the wine shop offers the opportunity to directly compare the labels from the volcano with those that come from the Trapani agricultural area, as well as wines which are born on the Calamoni Estate on the island of Favignana.
This display range allows more demanding clients and the Etna Wine Shop experts to have the complete picture of the native and international vine varieties which are grown in Sicily. Guests are greeted by the refined atmosphere of the Etna Wine Shop, where every little detail has been carefully taken care of. This attention to detail is a feature of the Cavanera Wine Resort and the Wine Shop is no exception. The atmosphere it presents fully embodies Etna tradition and typical Sicilian hospitality.
In the Etna Wine Shop, clients can select their preferred wine labels at their leisure while being guided and advised by the expert, multilingual sales personnel. From the more well-known Etna DOC labels like the white and red varieties of “Le Sabbie dell’Etna”, continuing on to the multi-award winning Cavanera Ripa di Scorciavacca (a blend of Catarratto and Carricante grapes), and Cavanera Rovo delle Coturnie (a blend of Nerello Mascalese and nerello Cappuccio), before arriving, for just a select few, at the extremely small but precious production of wine which is made from the grapes of the pre-phylloxera vineyard.
The Etna Wine Shop offers its visitors the opportunity to gift themselves an intimate and unique memento of this precious corner of Sicily— a place which today is still able to convey a sense of extraordinary tradition, with roots reaching back through the centuries.
