Cantina Verde - the green winery
26-SEP-2008

Cantina Verde - the green winery

The distinctive colour of the rocks in this area of the island provided an obvious name for this winecellar - like many others, cut deep into the soft green volcanic tuff, as a cool and dry place for winemaking and storage.

Outside there's an ancient torchia - the hand-cranked mechanical grape press that took the place of the earlier heavy stone slabs once used for the same job.
