Frank Cornelissen is without a doubt one of biggest stars of the natural wine scene. A former mountain climber from Belgium, he established his estate on the Northern valley of the active volcano Mount Etna in 2001 at a time when Etna was still undiscovered as a wine region. He uses the cleanest, purest grapes he can to produce his distinctly individual wines, adding no sulfites and uses no oak barrels or stainless steel. His wines are full of volcanic minerality that express a strong sense of place and are some of the most exciting wines coming out of Italy today.
