Terra Costantino: Organic Excellence from the Heart of Etna



Nestled in the embrace of the Mediterranean and under the shadow of the majestic Etna Volcano, Terra Costantino stands as a beacon of organic winemaking in Sicily. At Wine Affairs, a leading wine distributor, we are honored to present this family-owned winery that has been nurturing the unique terroir of Etna for over four decades. Their rich history, steeped in tradition and a profound understanding of the land, allows Terra Costantino to genuinely capture the essence of Etna in their wines.


Terra Costantino's journey towards sustainability is noteworthy. They achieved a milestone in 2000 by becoming the first winery on Etna to obtain organic certification, and their commitment to eco-friendly practices has only deepened since. Their sustainable approach ensures a harmonious relationship with the environment, year-round.


Located at the epicenter of the Etna DOC appellation, Terra Costantino distinctively nurtures the unique characteristics of the Etna region. They cultivate 10 hectares of vineyards in Viagrande at Contrada Blandano, with an altitude between 450 and 500 meters above sea level. This historic land, rich in winemaking traditions dating back to Roman and Greek times, is also the site of their ancient millstone dated to 1700. In 2020, the winery expanded, adding the terraces of Contrada Praino and a new 2-hectare plot in Milo for the production of “Etna Bianco Superiore.”


Terra Costantino’s dedication to local grape varieties is a testament to their respect for Etna's terroir. They grow Carricante and Catarratto for white wines, and Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio for reds, varieties that thrive exclusively on Etna's slopes and embody the volcanic essence, resulting in uniquely elegant wines.


At Wine Affairs, our mission is to connect our clientele with the finest wines from around the world. We invite wine distributors who share our passion for quality and sustainability to partner with us in bringing Terra Costantino's exceptional wines to a broader audience. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for wine enthusiasts and skilled sales professionals to join our team.

Together, let's celebrate the rich heritage and distinct flavors that Terra Costantino and Etna have to offer.
