Eduardo Torres Acosta

Eduardo Torres Acosta, a young winemaker from the Canary Islands, first began working with vines in Tenerife, where his father, a local postman, had a small plot of land. In 2012 Eduardo moved to Sicily, where he apprenticed with Arianna Occhipinti. He soon got a job as enologist for the well-known Etna estate, Passopisciaro.  Despite Eduardo’s outsider status, he managed to rent several fine parcels on Etna. The grapes are harvested and then trucked to Arianna Occhipinti’s estate in Vittoria. As the winemaking facility is not on Etna, the wines are not allowed DO status and simply carry the IGT Terre Siciliane designation.
