Full description
First stop of the Etna Wine Tasting Tour will be the medieval towns of Linguaglossa or Castiglione di Sicilia – depending on the schedule of the Tour. A walk through the historic center of these villages gives you an opportunity to visit the beautiful Cathedral of Linguaglossa, or the majestic Norman castle in Castiglione di Sicilia. Breathe the peaceful life of two of the most beautiful villages at the feet of the Volcano. Breakfast or snacks will be offered to start the day. Next, you will move on to an Etna winery dating back to the 1980s, and meet an expert sommelier who will introduce you to the world of Etna wines. Learn the story behind the production of each bottle, from pruning to harvesting. Finally, led by the sommelier, you will have the opportunity to taste six different wines, not only from Mount Etna. Finally, stop at a winery in Linguaglossa where you will meet with a friendly owner and guide. Visit the vineyards, the millstone, walk around the barrels and learn about the tradition of wine production. Here you will be able to taste one red, one white and one rosé wine, all accompanied by a Sicilian lunch. Savor green olives, salami, Sicilian cheese, bread, and the famous pasta dish "alla norma", followed by a delicious dessert.

    Highly recommend to anyone interested in wine. The tour was excellent and made by the amazing group we were fortunate to be part of. The wine and food were delicious and our guide was very knowledgeable and safe through all of the windy roads. If you're in Catania, fancy a day trip and like wine, do this one. Scenery is also breathtaking.

    We enjoyed our time with dario, our guide, and appreciated his depth of knowledge about sicily and the areas we were driving and walking through. We treasured the opportunity to be exposed to real people living in this environment, and to the way they live and interact with the world. These are the best moments of travel for us.

    A wonderful and enjoyable day.

    Francesco the guide was knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. His team mate, Antonio the driver was safe and very competent. The wine tasting was excellent at both Wineries and the Sicilian food provided was delicious. Nothing was to much trouble for Francesco and Antonio, they spoilt us all day, showering on us too much food and coffee before and after our Winery visit. Their company was like enjoying a day out with your family, they made our day most enjoyable and very special. I would not hesitate in recommending this great day out to anybody that is looking for a cross section of Sicilian wines and tasty food, with a most enjoyable visit to the Mt Etna region. Thank you Francisco and Antonio for hosting us on a day we will remember fondly when we leave Catania for Australia.
