Very warm welcome, well organized tasting, with a good little accompaniment of cheeses and vegetables. Nice presentation of the wines in French (it's rare on the island!) Quick tour of the cellar Nice setting and beautiful view of the vineyards and the sea further on.

Wry friendly staff greeted us and allowed us to drink outside enjoying the amazing views. We then had a few extra wines and food which they didn’t have to do. Was the best wine and food experience that I have had.

We started a little late due to other participants but overall the hike was great, amazing views, our guide was informative. I thoroughly enjoyed it! A must do!

Great easy walk on the Etna. Impressive when you are the 2002 crater. Very good and interesting explanation by our guide Daniele.
