Producer Profile

Vino di Anna

Anna Martens and Eric Narioo embarked on their winemaking journey atop Mount Etna in 2008, a venture that culminated in the creation of "Vino di Anna" upon acquiring their first vineyard of ancient Nerello Mascelese vines and a 250-year-old palmento and wine building in 2010. Today, they steward 6 hectares of land, cultivating biodynamically and expanding their winery to accommodate nine buried Georgian qvevri for vinification and maturation.

Perched high on the north face of Mount Etna near Solicchiata, their domain is characterized by fertile black soils teeming with minerals, often sprinkled with fresh cinders from the volcano's frequent eruptions.

Where The Wines Come From


Sicily is the ultimate wine playground, an island paradise where fiery Mount Etna meets cool ocean breezes. Think sunshine-soaked grapes ripening in volcanic soil, bold reds like Nero d'Avola (think juicy black cherry) and fragrant whites like Grillo (hello, citrus!). Beyond the classics, there's a treasure trove of unique native grapes. It's a place where history swirls in your glass, from ancient Greek techniques to delicious sun-dried Marsala. A beach bum's haven, and a wine lover's playground, all rolled into one!
