The Palmento Costanzo vineyards on Mount Etna are located on the north side of Etna, between 650 and 780 meters above sea level in the Santo Spirito district, in the Village of Passopisciaro and the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia. They farm their about ten hectares of vineyards organically. The vines are arranged on a series of centuries-old terraces made of dry lava stones found in the immediate environment.
The soils of contrada Santo Spirito are recognized by many as one of the most important wine-regions within the DOC Etna. The vines are planted in nutrient-rich, brown volcanic sands derived from the degradation of lava deposits and in the vineyards there are some more than 100 years old pre-prephylloxera vines.
