La Contea produces high quality wines from autochthonous grapes exclusively owned by the estate of Santa Venera, a hamlet of the municipality of Mascali, on the eastern side of Etna volcano at about 450 meters above sea level.
Where Nerello Mascalese was born, in the absolute respect of centuries-old traditions, and with great attention to the environment, precious wines obtained only from the best hand- picked grapes are fully produced and bottled.
16 hectares of which 8 are planted with vineyards from which the 3 main product lines are born.
