Frank Cornelissen is a Belgian native who grew up as the son of a wine broker. He was entrenched in wine from a young age and went on to produce his first vintage in 2001 on Mt Etna in Sicily, starting with only half a hectare and growing the plantings to more than 20 hectares. Frank is terroir obsessed and makes transparent wines of immense complexity that strike the perfect balance between fruit, structure, and minerality. He is fastidious in the vineyards and the cellar, taking a highly detailed approach to winemaking. Frank doesn't use any pesticides or herbicides, and uses a limited amount of sulfur as needed. He was an early icon of the natural wine scene, but his winemaking style has evolved. Where earlier vintages saw no sulfur at all, today he is less dogmatic in his approach, guided by the wine and the vintage. These are thrilling, singular volcanic wines.
