After his first vintage in 2001, Frank Cornelissen quickly established himself as one of the top producers in the world.

Under the complete understanding that man will never know the true power of nature, he thinks of himself more as an observer than a winemaker. He believes that he is learning all the time from mother nature and that she is making him and his wines better each vintage. Using multiple plots on the northern valley of Etna, low grape yields & late harvesting help him produce his iconic territorial wines from local varieties. He has become something of icon himself within the natural wine movement and his vintages are highly sort after and sell quickly. They are truly representative of the unique wine making soils and climatic conditions to be found on Europe's highest volcano.
