Full description
Experience an urban winery on the slopes of Mount Etna. Begin the tour with a warm welcome and a walk across urban vineyards nestled between Catania and Etna. See the unique urban landscape with rare dry-stone-made buildings and walls from the 19th century, and an oak wood representing the large forest that was once just above Catania, now claimed by the expanding city. Children will receive a treasure map to follow along on the walk. Discover 18th-century Palmento (traditional Sicilian winery) upon returning from the walk, among the largest and best-preserved in the area, still equipped with its large chestnut wood barrels and the grape pressing machine dating back to 1790. Hear of some family stories found reading ancestor’s diaries from the 1800s. Finish the tour with a tasting experience on today's Etna culinary landscape. Taste wines from 4 different wineries around the volcano, each wine paired with a gourmet bite prepared by resident chef Leonardo, to finish a day relaxing in the courtyard or the garden looking at the Etna volcano.

    Vera was amazing, she did an excellent job at explaining the history and answering any questions we may have had. The winery itself was beautiful and had such an amazing and very rich history. The wine tasting and food pairings were absolutely delicious and i could not help but to feel at home myself throughout the entire tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone! I loved every second.

    Wir waren nur zu zweit. Wurden herzlich empfangen und durch das Weinanbaugebiet geführt. Bei der Besichtigung des Hauses stand der Besitzer Rede und Antwort. Zur Weinprobe gab es kleine Häppchen, die uns ein junger Koch zubereitete. Wir haben noch ein normales Menü zusätzlich bestellt. Der Koch hat Sterne-Niveau. Bestes Essen im ganzen Urlaub und der Zusatzpreis für das Mittagessen war so niedrig bei so hohem Niveau. Unbedingt zu empfehlen.

    Very friendly, family oriented staff. Food and wine was excellent! They're just getting started to don't expect towering lush vines, but definitely a nice place with lots of history!
