Eduardo first came to our attention through fellow Tenerife native Roberto Santana (Envínate), who strongly recommended we get in touch before someone else snapped him up! We’re happy we did as they turned out to be fresh, characterful wines possessing a true sense of place. Eduardo moved to Sicily in 2012 to work harvest as an intern at Arianna Ochippinti’s cellar in Vittoria.
He now divides his time between working at Pasopisciaro and running his own project. He rents two hectares of vineyards on Etna, divided among three different plots, and vinifies everything at Arianna’s winery. Eduardo is wholly committed to organic farming and does everything by hand. His focus is on the classic local black grapes, the noble Nerello Mascalese and its usual vineyard companions like Nerello Cappuccio. Despite his young age, Eduardo is already making a name for himself as one of the new Etna winemakers to watch.
"Versante Nord" by Eduardo Torres Acosta is a white wine fruit of a deeply territorial blend of Etna native vines coming from 6 different parcels located on the north side of the volcano, from which this label takes its name. A maceration on the skins that exudes minerality and infinite complexity, typical features of the volcanic terroir of origin. It is rich, powerful and sweetly tannic in the mouth with a young and brave soul, like the winemaker who has grown it in the vineyard and cared for in cement and barrels.
