LE VIGNE DI ELI
Marco de Grazia, the famous owner of Tenuta delle Terre Nere, founded Le Vigne di Eli in 2006 and dedicated it to his little girl, Elena, who designs the labels for each edition.
The small property is located on the northern slope of Mount Etna and, as Marco says, “it was born effortlessly. A simple gesture of love for my little girl, Elena (Eli). It happened in 2006. I was offered to buy two small vineyards, from two exceptional areas: Feudo di Mezzo and Moganazzi-Voltasciara. I bought them and because they were so small and delicate, they reminded me of Eli. This is how Le Vigne di Eli was born. The idea to use Elena’s drawings on labels came naturally, because I like them very much.”
“Equally natural came the idea that this vineyard dedicated to a child should help children in need. And so, a substantial part of the proceeds from here go to the Meyer Pediatric Hospital in Florence. Thus, the circle of this children’s project was closed. Over time, seeing the appreciation that Eli’s beautiful wines enjoy, we selected a few plots of exceptional quality that we rented to produce other beautiful wines. Among them, a wonderful Etna Bianco, from a vineyard in Milo. I am sure that in the future I will be tempted by other rare plots. We will live and we will see”.
