EDUARDO TORRES ACOSTA
Eduardo moved to Sicily in 2012 to work a harvest as an intern at Arianna Ochippinti’s cellar in Vittoria. He now divides his time between working at Pasopisciaro and running his own project. He rents two hectares of vineyards on Etna, divided among three different plots, and vinifies everything at Arianna’s winery. Eduardo is wholly committed to organic farming and does everything by hand. His focus is on the classic local black grapes, the noble Nerello Mascalese and its usual vineyard companions like Nerello Cappuccio. Despite his young age, Eduardo is already making a name for himself as one of the new Etna winemakers to watch.
