Highlights
  • Visit three family-run Mount Etna wineries
  • Taste a variety of wines including red, white, and rosé
  • Hotel pick-up and round-trip transportation are included
What to expect
  • Your personal tour leader will pick you up at your hotel/port and you will start your wonderful private travel (from 2 people) around top Etna wineries. Driving by comfortable, air-conditioned car through the small authentic mountain villages, you will admire unforgettable picturesque views of Sicilian countryside full of oranges and lemon plantations, olives and almond trees, houses and churches built of lava stone. The Etna Volcano erupting feeds the soil, and that is why this region is considered to be one of the best in the world for growing grapes and wine production. You will visit the three best wineries at Etna slopes. Wines from these wineries are on the top lists of premium international wine associations.  The first venue will be a family run winery, world famous with its outstanding wines.  Here you will be welcomed by the owner with a glass of an awesome aperitif white wine. Sipping refreshing wine, you will have a guided tour around the estate, after which you will visit the cellars where the owner or your private sommelier will explain you the wine production process. Finally, you will sit at a wonderful terrace with a breathtaking view of mountains and Ionian coastline, and with your personal sommelier start food and wine tasting. You will taste 4 or 5 excellent white, red and rose Etna DOC wines with locally produced cheeses, salami, prosciutto, sausages, cous-cous, vegetables, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, mushrooms, domestic olive oil and fresh home-made bread. Enjoying the panoramic view and unique atmosphere of Sicilian countryside, you will drive to the second venue – another outstanding Etna winery, where the owner will make for you a tour around the estate, and with a professional sommelier you will taste 4 brilliant red, rose and white wine of the region. You will continue the tour driving to the next venue, an ancient family run winery with an authentic charm. After the guided visit to the cellars, you will taste 3 premium red and white wines accompanied by fresh domestic appetizers: locally produced cheeses, meat delicacies, olives, olive oil and fresh bread. After the tour, your personal guide will bring you back to your accommodation.

We liked Emilio Wines the best. But all three wineries were great. The food was more than we expected. It was a fabulous trip!

I really can’t recommend this wine tasting tour highly enough - it was fantastic and a highlight of our 2-week break in Sicily.

Our guide Marco was great - engaging, knowledgable and he entertained us the whole time with stories, insights and enjoyable conversation - really helping to make the excursion the experience that it was. The time spent driving between wineries was just as enjoyable and interesting as the time spent tasting - thanks to great scenery (spectacular vistas, the drive along roads that cross centuries old lava fields) but mainly down to Marco's open, casual conversation and relaxed style. The fact that this tour is aimed at small groups (it was just myself and my partner) allows a personal touch and I feel I was able to get much more out of it than if I was part of a larger group.

The tasting experience itself was excellent. I’m used to self-guided tours where you visit 5 or more places in a single afternoon, where the cost is made up only of a small tasting fee (or is free), so I was a little hesitant about paying what seems like a substantial amount for a tour of 3 wineries. I needn’t have worried - this tour is great value and worth every penny. Aside from the driver/guide service, not only are you able to taste a number of wines at each winery, the tastings are provided alongside fantastic foods which are a great accompaniment to the wines and I feel that the quality of the overall service more than justifies the price.

The wineries we visited (Murgo, Gambino and Gibellina) were all excellent in terms of both quality of the wines/food but also for the level of engagement with the owners/sommeliers which really rounds out the experience and gives you a greater appreciation for their craft, the quality of the produce and the unique setting that they have on the slopes of Etna.

All in all this is a great experience and one which I am so glad I did.

I traveled solo and visited three wineries on Etna with Pasquale, it was a LOVELY experience. The wineries represented a variety of varietals approaches to winemaking, and each was a beautiful place to visit. I was solo and felt very safe, and Pasquale’s partners had other groups, and we ended up chatting and taking photos for each other outdoors at a couple of the stops which was also quite nice. The wine was so wonderful, everything I had hoped for in my visit. I also asked for Pasquale to pick me up in Taormina and drop me off at another hotel on the beach and he accommodated me with no problem. And to compare, I had emailed my hotel to visit just one winery and the price they quoted me was the same to just go to that one and return. I’d recommend this tour to anyone traveling alone or in a group. I’ve done a lot of wine tastings and tours and I’d do this one again for sure, and I found some wine I really loved that I am planning to buy more of!

I took some time researching wine tours for our stay in Taormina and I am so happy we took this tour with our guide Marco! We could not recommend this enough. This was one of the friendliness, accommodating, professional and personable tours I have taken in my times spent traveling through Europe.
Marco, our guide, was wonderful and great company to be with for the day. The wineries visited are top line and really great experiences with delicious food included. I would take this tour many more times over again. We had the best time. Thank you !!!!!

We had such a good experience with Pasquale, Maurizio, at the Wineries we visited.

They are very professional but also really friendly, we immediately felt comfortable taking a long ride from Catania to the Wineries and back.
Maurizio has such a great knowledge and he really likes to tell you everything about Sicily, culture and answer any questions you like to know.
At the wineries we felt very comfortable as well, with plenty of delicious wine (I never tested anything like Etna Rosso or Passito before) and plenty cheese , olives , olive oil and sausage/cold cuts/salami .

Such a good taste and social experience. From now on I’m a real fan of wine, in particular Sicily Etna wine and olive oil.

I would recommend it to everyone who likes to taste wine , get to know Sicily and likes to socialize. Thank you so much for this great experience.

I will tell so many friends and Familie members about this and I hope you are doing well in the future.
Cheers

The 3 vineyards we're all slightly different, highlighting the different altitudes and variety of grapes. Patria winery was so majestic and the tour of the facility beautiful and really told the story of the area. Pasquale was amazing for a number of reasons, but mostly for his flexibility ... We needed to reduce the size of our group from 4 to 3 people; Pasquale was very understanding and allowed us to do it last minute. Lena, our driver, was so sweet and by the end of the trip we were telling stories, jokes and exchanging music tastes ... She was family by the end of the day.

I would highly recommend this wine tour, and if I find myself back in the area, I will definitely book a tour with Pasquale again. Thank you Lena and Pasquale!!!!!!
