Your personal tour leader will pick you up at your hotel/port and you will start your wonderful private travel (from 2 people) around top Etna wineries. Driving by comfortable, air-conditioned car through the small authentic mountain villages, you will admire unforgettable picturesque views of Sicilian countryside full of oranges and lemon plantations, olives and almond trees, houses and churches built of lava stone. The Etna Volcano erupting feeds the soil, and that is why this region is considered to be one of the best in the world for growing grapes and wine production. You will visit the three best wineries at Etna slopes. Wines from these wineries are on the top lists of premium international wine associations.
The first venue will be a family run winery, world famous with its outstanding wines. Here you will be welcomed by the owner with a glass of an awesome aperitif white wine. Sipping refreshing wine, you will have a guided tour around the estate, after which you will visit the cellars where the owner or your private sommelier will explain you the wine production process. Finally, you will sit at a wonderful terrace with a breathtaking view of mountains and Ionian coastline, and with your personal sommelier start food and wine tasting. You will taste 4 or 5 excellent white, red and rose Etna DOC wines with locally produced cheeses, salami, prosciutto, sausages, cous-cous, vegetables, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, mushrooms, domestic olive oil and fresh home-made bread.
Enjoying the panoramic view and unique atmosphere of Sicilian countryside, you will drive to the second venue – another outstanding Etna winery, where the owner will make for you a tour around the estate, and with a professional sommelier you will taste 4 brilliant red, rose and white wine of the region.
You will continue the tour driving to the next venue, an ancient family run winery with an authentic charm.
