Our story begins in Valcerasa, in the Cherry Valley, where Alice’s father’s vineyard was located on the eastern slope of Mount Etna. It’s from here that their flagship wine, Valcerasa, originates. Currently, they operate in Randazzo, on the northern side of Mount Etna. Back in 2000, they discovered the perfect location in Croce Monaci. Over the course of two decades, they managed to expand their property from 3 to approximately 18 hectares of land.
Bonaccorsi follows organic practices and is certified ICEA. They are strongly committed to promoting biodiversity, maintaining spontaneous vegetation, and preserving fruit trees that contribute to the natural balance. Their vineyards stem from plants that are 80 years old, and their care relies solely on the use of copper-based sulfur. This approach allows them to obtain grapes free from chemical residues while being rich in natural yeasts that play a fundamental role in the winemaking process. In the cellar, they adhere to a natural approach, avoiding the use of chemical substances.
A crucial aspect for them is represented by the fresh and innovative ideas of their daughters, who contribute to infusing new vitality into the company while maintaining the distinctive coherence that characterizes Bonaccorsi.
