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.

    I booked this visit for my family, who were visiting the area for Christmas. They were blown away by all that they learned and had an extremely memorable time learning from Angela, and tasting the delicious wines. Thank you for creating such a special place!

    We had such a great experience today! First we had a tour in the wineyard which was really nice and the guide explained everything pleasure. The history behind this wineyard is very interesting! Their dog came along with the tour which was a nice addition. Afterwards, we got to taste 4 different wines which were amazing. The food that came with these wines were incredible as well. We included the lunch which was a good decision. The staff was very kind. We would definitely recommend this experience.

    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.
