A perfect day

A perfect selection of wineries, from big to small. Elena, our guide, was both charming and wonderful. We had a medical issue later in our trip and she was there to support us!

Have had better wine tours.
Frank_B
, Oct 2021
Most memorable was the car 4 of us (+ driver) squeezed into for our drives to the winery! No Covid worries, I guess. It was very uncomfortable, and we are 75-82 yo.. Our driver was Omar. Nice pleasant guy, helpful. He was to meet us in lobby, but had never been to our hotel before so went to lower parking lot & called up to front desk to say he Was down there. That made us late starting as it is about 10 min walk down thru the gardens. Tho “private” tour, we caravanned with two other cars (1 couple each) . Had our own tables, except last winery all together. 3 wineries, all good wines. Food was ok. Basically charcuterie at first two - only a bread with different pates at third. Certainly enough food (unless you don’t like olives & sun-dried tomatoes like my husband). We liked the third smaller winery best. Had to tell our driver he could pull up to front gate of hotel. We have had better wine tours. Not sure it was worth the money.

We are very happy for the review and for the nice words that you used for our guide Omar. We are also happy that you enjoyed the wine in each winery ("All good wines" you wrote) and that the food was ok! Thank you. The car was a seven-seater so we thought it was quite roomy. Frank, this is a private tour, it means you had a private car and a private driver and private table like your wrote "our own tables" but certainly the vineiries are open to everyone. So it is normal to meet other people inside the winery. We cannot book the winery for only four people. The six-hour tour lasted almost eight hours but for Omar and for all of us the most important thing was your enjoyment. At the end of the tour you asked if it was possible to do the same tour in the middle of November for your friends and Omar replied that we are happy to welcome them.

MUST DO!!! Absolutely perfect day

From start to end, this was the most amazing day. Bruno was warm and knowledgeable. He treated us like family with insights on the area and made sure all was perfect at each of the vineyards we visited. He curated a perfect day- private winery tour in the country, lunch with an amazing view at buzzy Gambino, and wrapping up the day with the delicious wines, hospitality and breathtaking views at Gibellina. I must add we felt at ease the entire trip thanks to Bruno ensuring we had water, tea, coffee, peaches (from his home!)… it was a true delight.

A wonderful day at 3 vineyards!

We had a lovely private day at 3 Etna vineyards! Marco picked us up on time and even brought me fresh fruit from his garden, which was so thoughtful. The cherries were delicious! We loved the 3 vineyards we visited and there was food served at all of them: meats, cheeses, jams, bread, olives etc. We weren't asked about dietary restrictions like on other tours but we managed fine. Overall, it was a wonderful and experience and I highly recommend!

Perfect time to relax and enjoy all 3 wineries

We did this tour with our 4-month old baby and were a bit nervous about it as it was the first such tour since he was born. But Marco was fantastic about making sure that everything went smoothly. He communicated the pickup time the night before, helped us carry the stroller up and down some of the stairs, gave us enough time to feed and change the baby after eating, and even brought us some delicious peaches from his garden to start the day off. And in between visits he was eager to tell us about the history of Sicily, both ancient and modern. We’ve done a few of these types of tours in other countries, but this is hands-down the best one we’ve done in terms of quality and planning. 3 wineries in around 6 hours is the perfect amount of time to enjoy the views, the wine, and the food. For the wine—I didn’t have one I didn’t like. They were all great and we bought a few bottles to bring home. I’m a big fan of the Etna reds and whites. There was also plenty of food, so much so that we didn’t eat all of it (but made sure we tried a little bit of everything). A lot of the food was mostly meats and cheeses from the area with olive oil/bread. But we also had some cous-cous and some delicious pasta. If you are looking for a brief glimpse of vineyard life in the Etna region, and also take in some great views and enjoy local wine and food, this is the perfect tour for you.

Great driver, terrible car, lovely wineries, no lunch -- bottom line: overpriced tour!
CABOrlando
, Nov 2019
Although our driver / guide (Raffaele) was knowledgeable and friendly, the car was too small and not a luxury vehicle at all! 3 of us squished into back seat and 1 up front. In other similar tours we have taken in Italy at this (high) price point we have had Mercedes class vans for the group, which is what you expect at this price, especially since we were in the car for 2-3 hours during the tour. The wineries were beautiful and we had interesting guides take us through their production facilities. For a 6-hour tour we did expect a proper lunch, not just antipasto with the wine. All-in-all we did enjoy the tour but would NOT recommend it for the price.

we had Roberto as our guide. he is wonderful. very informative and kind. we were picked up from our bed and breakfast and taken to 3 wineries. we really enjoyed the first two. they were smaller and not so commercialized. all the wines were great and the food also. on the first winery the tasting was outside and it was just fantastic. definitely do recommend this tour!!

Great birthday! We LOVE Raffaele! ❤🌋❤

Being from California, my friend and I wanted to experience some varieties of wine that were new to us. We tasted many wines and learned a lot about the grapes as well as the volcanic soil and regions of the vineyards in Sicily. Perfect tasting assortment and quantity of wine at the 1st winery. There was also a great tour of the outdoor property, however, it had recently rained and the mosquitoes were very active. We enjoyed the wonderful food, especially the pasta at lunch, at the 2nd winery, but wished that we had more room for the food at the 3rd winery. All of our hosts were very gracious. There were generous amounts of wine to taste and the ability to have wine shipped home, if desired. We had ample time to experience each winery, without feeling rushed. Lastly, we truly lucked out having Raffaele as our driver. He is very knowledgeable of the Mount Etna region, charming and drove very safely. He deserves a raise! Thanks Raffaele! Hope to visit Sicily again!
