The Vasadonna Estate
Put life back into “Custera” oil: this is Salvatore Scuderi’s main objective, owner of Tenuta Vasadonna. Salvatore’s dream emerged from the ashes of the ancient Feudo Moncada, a passion that has been handed down from father to son. The estate has 15 hectares in the heart of Eastern Sicily on the slopes of Mount Etna in the Belpassodistrict. There are 3200 olive plants of two varieties, the Nocellara Etnea and Nocellara Messinese. Vasadonna plantation produces around 5000 litres of organic extra virgin olive oil annually. The oil was affectionately named after the Vasadonna district where women once used to wash clothes in the stream and suitors hoped to steal a kiss from their girlfriends.
