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.

Sicilian wine tasting tends to go a certain way: tour, history, antipasti, wine. That's very interesting, but also somewhat limiting - I don't want to do it more than once or twice during a vacation! But if you're going to be spending two or three...More

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.
