We tasted five very distinctive wines here, three reds, a white, and a sparkling white, all top notch and delicious. I have no doubt we'll be hearing more about this label, and the Etna region generally, in the future.

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 would encourage you to contact them directly to try to arrange this, as this is not something most places in Italy do. Generally restaurant only operate starting at noon.
