We are ecstatic to host Winemaker Antonio Benanti for a five-course dinner celebrating his family's legacy and spectacular, age-worthy wines. Join us as we take a journey around Mt. Etna and learn a bit of history.
The Benanti family has been making wine for passion on Mt. Etna in Sicily since the late 1800’s in Viagrande. In 1988 the winery was formally founded by Giuseppe Benanti, an ambitious and passionate man. Giuseppe led the winery for 25 years, contributing greatly to the development and the growth of the whole region. In 2013 Antonio and Salvino Benanti took over from their father Giuseppe, sharing the same vision, dreams, and passion. They are credited with reshaping the destiny of their wine region and are the only winery with vineyards on every slope of the Etna DOC area. Antonio is the current president of the Etna DOC Consortium.
