Tenuta Di Castellaro was founded in 2006 on Lipari island at 350m altitude overlooking the sea, in a spectacular and unspoiled location. It produces organic wines of excellence.
The production, recently extended with the purchase of a centenarian vineyard in Passopisciaro on the north slope of Etna mountain, was born by the heroic willingness to recover the abandoned lands and to select the more ancient and healthy autochthonous varieties of the Aeolian Islands. More than 22 hectares of vineyards totally planted with the Etnean bush system to give birth to a wine respectful of the terroir, totally quality driven.
Thanks to the counseling of winemaker and agronomist Salvo Foti (founder of "I Vigneri" consortium) the vines are grown with the ancient Etnean bush system with the chestnut wood tutor without any help from mechanisation. The will is to produce an absolutely Natural wine that purely express the terroir and his viticultural heritage.
The environmental context where the vines grow is unique and unspoiled. Most of them are planted on a plain at 350 meters overlooking the wonderful view of Salina, Alicudi and Filicudi islands in the sea. 
The 2000 square meters bio-energetic winery (designed by the architect Giannetti-Dalpiaz), is totally underground and built in a modern way to show the asset of the vernacular architecture, with columns that prove 20.000 years of geological period. Right near the winery, a wind tower is used to refrigerate the winemaking operations in a natural way and zero impact on the environment.
