Prickly pear of Etna
Prickly pear of Etna

A unique heritage rich in local and quality products

Circumnavigating the volcano and crossing the twenty Municipalities within the territory of Etna Park, you will experience a delicious cocktail of tastes: from Nicolosi mushrooms to Pedara apples, Zafferana Etnea honey, Linguaglossa sausages, Maletto strawberries, Bronte pistachio, Adrano salads, Belpasso nougats, and Ragalna oil. And wine, a quality wine increasingly appreciated all over the world coming from the wonderful vineyards of Milo, Sant'Alfio, Viagrande, Castiglione di Sicilia, Randazzo, Linguaglossa, and Piedimonte Etneo, whose growth is favored by the extraordinary fertile lava soil.
Etna Park has already started activities aiming at enhancing local agri-foodstuffs, wine and gastronomy, as well as products coming from organic farming and integrated production. As far as designations of origin and geographical indications, Etna boasts the DOC Etna label for White, Red, Rosé, and White Superior wine, PDO Monte Etna for extra-virgin olive oil, PDO label for Etna Prickly Pear, PGI label for Etna Cherry, PDO label for Sicilian Pecorino cheese, and some Slow Food Presidia protecting and promoting products like Bronte Pistachio and Etna Tabacchiera Peach.
