The Park Authority, aiming at the integration between environmental protection and promotion of the economic activities, safeguards and promotes Etna wine growing as "invaluable inherited heritage" to safeguard, enhance, and promote, as well as an economic sector of primary importance. This aim can be achieved through the safeguard of the Etna environmental and cultural heritage, the improvement and stabilization of the production quality parameters, and the promotion of the product image linked to its territory.
