We had a great tour with Denise. There were 6 of us on the tour. The wine and food tasting was at the Gambino winery and was excellent. After our wine tasting of five different wines, we went to another place for an organic lunch and more wine of course. The meal was was very good. I would definitely recommend this tour.

The tour picked us up at our hotel and there were 8 people in total. The tour guide pointed out landmarks etc. on our way to Mt Etna. We stopped at Gambino vineyards for a tour and appetizers and wine tasting. The food was delicious and the different wines were paired with the food items. We then moved onto a small inn for lunch which was also delicious. The wine here was in carafes and complimented our meal. We enjoyed meeting the other travelers from different countries. It was a fabulous day!!!

If you love good wine and good food, then go ahead and book this tour. It's a fantastic day-trip you'll thoroughly enjoy. We learned about the local Etna wine, some history about the winery we visited plus the wines they produce. We tasted five wines paired with yummy Sicilian delights, and then went to a restaurant on the other side of Mt. Etna for more wonderful wine and food.
