Had a lovely afternoon at Gambino. Follow the details on their website map and it's easy to find.
We booked and travelled there independently from Taormina. Word of warning it's 70e one way from Taormina to Gambino Winery so an organised tour maybe more cost effective and easy to find online, but I suggest you prebook.
On arrival they greeted us like friends and thrust a glass of lovely refreshing white wine straight in my hand...... definitely my kinda place I thought!!!
The vineyard itself is great value for money. 28e each for maybe 8 wines (they are generous with their pouring so I may have lost count!) and a selection of matched food which consisted of cheese, antipasto, sausage and a sweet thing... all very nice. I took a particular liking to a red and the bottle was left in the table to help myself to another glass!!
The wine sommelier that looked after us was really lovely. He was clearly passionate and knowledgeable about the products and told information in an engaging and humous way. In no way did this feel like an elitist snobby experience. It's easy accessible wine tasting that was fun and informative.
At no point did we feel obliged or pushed to buy wine. We did buys some though..... and they make shipping cases very easy if you want to. This vineyard doesn't mass produce wine it's more boutique wine and as such most of their business is private export to visitors like us.
Would totally visit again and recommend if you in that area.
