"How much joy and magic would lack in our best experiences without good wine"

The Ancient Millstone of Etna. La Martinella.

The ancient millstone “Palmento La Martinella” is located at a 600 m above sea level, on the north-east side of Etna, in the territory of the municipality of Linguaglossa, precisely in the district with the same name Martinella.

It was born at the end of the 19th century, at the hands of the Sgarlata family, who began to produce wine at the beginning of the 20th century.

In 2015, the entrepreneur from Catania, Emilio Sciacca, recovered the millstone, which became a ruin, with conservative restoration work combined with the introduction of modern architectural elements.
