In 2007, Silvia Maestrelli founded Tenuta di Fessina in the village of Rovittello on the northeastern side of Mt. Etna. They have 17 acres of vineyards in Rovittello (2,200 feet) and 6 acres between Milo and Santa Maria di Licodìa (3,280 feet). These vineyards are located on different sides of the mountain in order to produce the best expressions of the indigenous varietals. There has also been a strong focus on hospitality: Seven rooms for guests were built inside a 17th century structure on the property. In collaboration with winemaker Federico Curtaz, Maestrelli has created, in just 10 years, one of the most successful and recognizable cellars in the Etna area and has become a perfect ambassador of new Sicilian viticulture.
