Overview
More
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.

Giuseppe and his sons Salvino and Antonio have done a phenomenal amount of work to make this vineyard one of the premier wineries in all of Sicily. They provided a wonderful tour and a delicious meal for us! An experience I will cherish always!

One of my favourite winery on the Southeast slop of the Etna. Their excellent wines go together with freindliness, professionality and a beautiful set. Do'n'y miss the paintings collection.

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.
