Tenute Bosco

Just landed we are please to have added Tenute Bosco to our list

Sofia Bosco started Tenute Bosco in 2010 in an attempt to breathe life back into two small vineyards on the slopes of Mount Etna.

Some of the vines are over 120 years old, and pre-phylloxera, on land recovered 300 years ago from the cooled lava flow following Etna’s last major eruption.

There is more living history in the sight of the traditional ‘alberello’ method of propagation in the vineyards that leaves the vines free standing and backed by dry stone walls.

Sofia is intent on reviving the traditions of this land, and the indigenous Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Carricante which they clearly love. Creating wines that definitely have a sense of place, of the present and the past.
