“At the heart of our philosophy is a love for our land which is equalled by the respect with which we treat it. Pietradolce is a boutique winery that works in traditional ways, using mostly pre-Phylloxera vineyards at 900 meters (almost 3,000 feet) above sea level on the northern slopes of Mount Etna.”
