Last week we were lucky enough to have a visit from Frank Cornelissen. For those familiar with Frank and his wines you know what a special and unique winemaker he is. His own words say it better than we ever could:
Our farming philosophy is based on our acceptance of the fact that man will never be able to understand nature's full complexity and interactions. We therefore choose to concentrate on observing and learning the movements of Mother Earth in her various energetic and cosmic passages and prefer to follow her indications as to what to do, instead of deciding and imposing ourselves. Consequently this has taken us to avoiding all possible interventions on the land we cultivate, including any treatments, whether chemical, organic, or biodynamic, as these are all a mere reflection of the inability of man to accept nature as she is and will be.
The divine ability to understand the 'Whole' was obviously not given to man as we are only a part of this complex and not God himself.
Our products are the result of this philosophy and our hands and team. Wines and olive oils which reflect ultimate territorial identity and mineral depth carry the name Magma® and MunJebel®. These are single cru and vintage wines and olive oils from various superb terroirs between 600-1.000 metres altitude in the Northern valley of Mount Etna, Sicily. Magma® Rosso is our "Grand Vin", produced from only Nerello Mascalese grapes in contrada Barbabecchi. Magma® Olio di Oliva is pressed from perfectly ripe San Benedetto olives from contrada Borriglione.
