Alta Mora is a new winery from the Cusumano family.  These grapes are grown and harvested on the slopes of the active volcano, Mt. Etna, in Sicily.  It has been a lifelong dream for the Cusumano brothers to build a winery among these black, fertile and dynamic soils. The name Alta Mora translates to “Tall, Black” representing the great heights of the vineyards on the mountain and the dark, black volcanic soil. The volcano itself is nearly 11,000ft high and vineyards are planted up to 4,000ft high. Alta Mora Etna Bianco is comprised mostly of the indigenous Sicilian grape, Carricante. This wine is a slight nod to Sauvignon Blanc. It is fresh, fruity with great minerality and a great classic with seafood dishes.
