Tifeo - Half human and half dragon, Tifeo was a divine creature in Greek mythology. His wings lay between Messina and Syracuse, his tail underneath Naples, and his heart beats under Mount Etna. Tifeo was thought to have temporarily disabled the Greek God Zeus, who was later rescued by his son Hermes.

The grapes of Mt. Etna are grown with love and care by the Gambino family. The unique environment of this active volcano in Sicily is commonly referred to as the “island within an island.” While grapes don’t grow easily in extreme volcanic conditions, when harvested with care, they create an incredible wine meant to be savored. Named after the Mascali area in Carania where the grape is thought to have originated, the Nerello Mascalese grape grows in the cool, high altitudes of the active volcano Mt. Etna. Grown primarily on the northeastern side of Sicily, this red grape contains a rustic black volcanic earthy note, and medium weight fine-grained tannins. Nerello Mascalese grapes are ideal for producing sensational rosato wines.

Feu D'o Bianco

This refreshing white wine is a blend of Grillo and Carricante. Light bodied and crisp, this wine displays aromas and flavors of stone fruit and melon. 


The name of this wine comes from the originally spoken Sicilian term ‘feud’oro’ which loosely translates to ‘golden feud’. The name represents the ancient feuds (during medieval times) to control the land. Over time, the use of the adjective "d'oro" became restricted to the area of Marsala (in western Sicily), so we now simply say 'feud'o'.

USA Traveler Experience

We first learned about this winery while cruising the Mediterranean. This excursion was fantastic. As we climbed the mountain side along The volcanic ash we soon came to the facility. We were greeted warmly by the staff with a glass of white wine, which in fact was excellent. We were invited into a great hall that was rustic,
With large exposed beams and cathedral ceilings. The viewpoint was overlooking the Vineyard which overlooked the small towns from the mountain side. The cheeses that were selected with the four types of wine was an excellent choice. I am not a connoisseur of wine and I really don’t drink alcohol. I did this for the sheer experience And what a wonderful surprise this was. Everyone on the staff was extremely accommodating, very professional, and truly had a warmth and passion for their customers. We did purchase wine and had a trip to USA and will continue to purchase this particular wine in the future. Thank you for such a wonderful and enlightening experience. You truly made us feel part of the family even though we were 6000 miles away from home.

Thank you,
