Palmento Costanzo is located in Contrada Santo Spirito, in the village of Passopisciaro, on the north side of the volcano Etna. Palmento Costanzo also has vineyards in Contrada Feudo di Mezzo and Contrada Cavaliere. The Etneo wine-growing areas, identified as contrade (plural for Contrada), are circumscribed geographical areas that differ from each other in terms of microclimate, soil organicity, and exposure to the sun and winds.
