In Lipari, one of the beautiful Aeolian islands, stands the Castellaro estate: a beautiful project that arises from the desire to safeguard a territory that has still remained virgin from human intervention. The care and dedication with which the island's vines are cultivated have led to the production of fine and unique wines. To make the most of the qualities of the vineyard, the most innovative and avant-garde techniques are used here, mixing them with traditional methodologies that belong to the local culture; the most used system is the alberello cultivation of the vine in which the plants do not live isolated from each other but in small groups.
Each crop is grown with love and dedication leading to the production of unique and fine wines. The particular configuration of the territory in which the estate stands allows for the growth of strong and robust plants, which receive the right amount of sun, wind and water. Not for nothing else does the island of Lipari have a very ancient tradition in the viticulture sector.
Sun, wind and respect for nature also translate into the construction of the cellar: it is a bioenergetic structure in which we try to optimize the heat of the sun and the strength of the wind to minimize the use of electricity. The tradition of the island of Lipari is instead translated into the architecture of the cellar which incorporates the features of the Norman cloister, emblem of the island.
The Castellaro estate project is much broader and more extensive than one might think: anyone visiting Lipari can savor the beauty of this place; the structure organizes guided tours during which you can learn about the history of the cellar, the process of making the wines, sip the highly prized products, immersed in a spectacular natural landscape from which it is possible to admire Alicudi, Filicudi and Salina .
Come and get to know this magical place, which will make you fall in love with this fantastic island again!
