We perform guided tours of Vinicola Benanti during the week. We start with an excursion on the vineyard Monte Serra, which is an ex crater of the Etna. Here we have the Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio vines, with major part pre-philoxera and older than 100 years. We will continue by visiting the ‘palmento’ which dates from 1700. Following the tour there will be a local brunch accompanied with our most selective volcanic wines.

A gorgeous winery and surrounding vineyards, wonderful owners, and most importantly very tasty wine. We were hosted here, with a larger group, for a tour and private dinner and it was the highlight of our trip to Sicily. Thank you to the Benanti family.

I visited here this week with a group of professionals attending the International Wine Tourism conference. It was everything a winery should be, welcoming, friendly and professional at the same time, the family have got it just right The setting is magnificent, being able to visit the pre-phyloxera vines with a glass in hand just brings it all to life....

One of the highlights of our trip to Sicily this past fall was our visit to the Benanti Winery. We had a little trouble finding it as it its entrance is almost hidden off a busy street in the little town of Viagrande. Once there however, it was like being transported to another world. Behind the brick walls and up... More

Not to be missed! Incredible wine, incredible people and incredible meal. Really, it puts all other wine tours & tastings to shame. We will happily support this producer for as long as we can.

Having been greeted by Valentina we were shown around the vineyards where we were surprised to find that wine tasting began on the hillside with a delicate, fresh sparkling white wine with canapés. It was at this point we were introduced... More

We had a wonderful visit with Antonio. They family are great hosts and their wine is superb. The food and ambiance is perfect for an afternoon of wine tasting. Don't miss this one if you find yourself on Etna.

We called into Benanti Winery on a September afternoon without notifying the winery that we were coming. We were overwhelmed with the warm welcome and were very fortunate that Salvino Benanti made the time to show us around and let us taste some of the absolutely wonderful wines they produce at Benanti Winery. We are a couple from Australia and... More
