WEBSITE

Elisabetta Musto Carmelitano followed in her family's footsteps, as the fourth generation to grow grapes on this land. However, the grapes were primarily sold to other wineries before Elisabetta began Musto Carmelitano in 2006. Truly a family winery, the land itself was given to Elisabetta by multiple family members, and she operates the winery with her father and brother.
