The winery itself is quite attractive with lovely views of the vineyards and surrounding area. We were greeted with a glass of wine and taken outside for an introduction to the history of the winery. Our tasting consisted of 2 white wines and three reds, all paired with some delicious (and plentiful) food offerings. The staff was very informative and personable. I would highly recommend this winery tour.

Amazing!! Giuseppe was so knowledgeable about Sicilian history, Mt Etna, hiking, wine, food - you name it! He took us to 2 great wineries, an ancient village near Mt. Etna and even his home town where we went to a Salumeria. It was such a great time and we recommend him and his tours to everyone! We can't wait to go back because this made our trip truly amazing!
