Cornelissen is a Belgian winemakerIn 2001 he embarked on this new experience at the foot of Etna, then an area far from the many spotlights that has now rightly arrived.
The company is located in the northern valley of what is the largest emerged volcano in Europe, and is considered in the same way as Cote de Nuits or Barolo (and its neighbors)for production quality and results.
Franck currently has about 24 hectares, 13 of which are old vines in the classic Alberello style, 9 of old vines transformed into modern rows of various widths, then olive and fruit trees.
In the vineyard and surrounding lands no interventions of any kind are carried outindustrial fertilizers are not used, and as far as possible... ploughing is avoided. Copper sulphate and sulphur, in any case allowed by natural practice, within certain quantities, are necessary to prevent the plant from dying, so it was in 2013 and 2015.
The yields are very low, from 300gr to 600gr per plant, the quality is very high.
