Owner description: On the eastern side of the Etna volcano, in the woods of the National Park and facing the sea of Taormina, the Gambino vineyards are a pleasure for your senses and for your heart. A Pleasure for your sight, because they represent one of the best models of Etna vineyards of high altitude: in an exclusive natural environment, at 800 meters above sea level, the vineyards lay on sunny and airy terracing that have a breathtaking panorama. A pleasure for your sense of smell, for the unmistakable perfumes of the volcano vegetation. A pleasure for your heart, because the vineyards and wine are great passion that, for over twenty years, involves and guides the Raciti Gambino family.

What a nice place, one of the better wine tasting experience's I have had the pleasure of doing. We had the cheese platter with the tasting which was spot on.

This trip should have taken 50 minutes from our hotel in taromina. Unfortunately the concierge at the hotel gave us wrong address. So two hours later and one hour late for our lunchtime booking we turned up. So pleased we persevered. The staff wine and food were more than worth the very long journey. This is a family run business and we were lucky enough to meet one of the brothers who was beyond charming. Hannah our guide was very knowledgeable and delightful. We paid €28 for 5 different wines to taste plus delicious anti pasta. Wine portions were very generous and we were offered more food if we wanted. You can then purchase the wine and have it shipped to the uk for free. At €10-€20 per bottle I guarantee you will treat yourself. The bonus is the stunning views down from the vineyard. Enjoy enjoy.

Loved the wine and the nibbles that accompanied the tasting. The range of products and the knowledge and friendliness of the staff were great. You were never made to feel like you were part of some factory processing tasters. There was a casual and relaxed atmosphere that allowed you to really try and enjoy the wines. Kudos for getting it right!

This wine tasting experience was chosen by our Driver when we toured Sicily. I am so glad we allowed him to make the choice! This was by far one of the nicest wine tasting experiences I have ever enjoyed. They paired their lovely white and red wines with cheeses, eggplant, sausages, meats and other goodies. We fell in love with their reds and ordered several bottles to be shipped to our homes and I am excited to share part of my Italian experience with my friends. On another note, the winery is beautiful and not overly commercial with their offerings. We loved it so much, we wanted t-shirts like the staff wears and they barely had enough sizes to accommodate. No touristy junk offered here! It is all about the wine.
