Eduardo Torres Acosta, a young winemaker from the Canary Islands, first began working with vines in Tenerife, where his father, a local postman, had a small plot of land. In 2012 Eduardo moved to Sicily, where he interned at Azienda Arianna Occhipinti (you may have heard of it). Soon thereafter he got a job as the enologist at Azienda Passopisciaro, one of the pioneers of new wave Etna producers. Despite Eduardo’s "outsider" status, he managed to rent several fine parcels on Etna from locals. The grapes are harvested and then trucked to Arianna Occhipinti’s estate in Vittoria. Since the winemaking facility is not on Etna, the wines are not allowed DO status and simply carry the IGT Terre Siciliane designation.
