Alta Mora

Alta Mora wines are made from grapes from the steep slopes of Mt. Etna in Sicily, the largest active volcano in Europe. Alta Mora means "tall and black," which describes the black volcanic soil of the vineyards that are at an elevation of nearly 11,000 feet. A new project from the Cusumano family, Alta Mora wines are a break-through, offering light-bodied wines that are food-friendly and ageable with beautiful fruit.
