About The Winery

The winery Masseria Setteporte is located in a very unique place: on the south-western slope of the
Sicilian vulcano Etna, in the town of Biancavilla, within the Etna D.O.C. area. Here, viticulture dates
back to ancient times. The Portale family, owners of Masseria Setteporte, have passed their winemaking
tradition down through generations. The farm was first modernised by Ferdinando Portale who turned
the classic bush trained vineyards into a vertical trellis system, which is more suitable for modern growing
techniques. In 2002 Piero Portale decided to carry on his father’s project, taking the farm from its original
12 ha to 27 ha, 16.5 of which are already planted with vines.
The vineyards are cultivated on terraces facing south, at an altitude between 650 and 800 m a.s.l. where
the vulcanic soil, the high altitudes and the typical Mediterranean climate create a unique habitat for wines
which excel in elegance and feature an intriguing aroma profile as well as superb drinkability.
