Eduardo Torres first began working with vines in his native Canary Islands, Spain. In 2012 Eduardo island-hopped to Sicily to intern with Arianna Occhipinti at her eponymous winery. Following this formative experience, he got his first winemaking job at Passopisciaro.
Versante Nord comes from two parcels- totaling 1.5 hectares on the cooler, north-facing side of Mt. Etna (hence the wine's name Versante Nord). Vinified in concrete and aged in Slovenian oak in Vittoria at Occhipinti.
