We will pick you up outside/nearby your accommodation in Taormina or in its close vicinity (depending on the accommodation’s location, we will organize a convenient meeting point) at about 9.00 AM. Each of our vehicles can accommodate up to 8 participants.
First off you will head to Castiglione di Sicilia, framed in the beautiful valley of the Alcantara. In fact, this village standing on a hill northwards of Etna belongs to the circuit “Italy’s most beautiful borghi”. During the free visit of the city, you will see the Castelluccio, an ancient byzantine castle; then “ U Cannizzu” tower; finally the cobblestone alleys and the several old churches, which are typical of these medieval villages. Not to miss is the view from the Belvedere: you will be delighted at the magnificent panorama of the Alcantara Valley.
After that, at about 11.00/11.30 AM you will get to the first winery, where you will start with the Etna Wine tasting; also, you will have an aperitif based on local products. Next, during a walk through the vineyards, you will learn about their production.
Then, at lunchtime (about 1/.1.30 PM), you will move to the second winery. There, you will sip some more DOP Etnean wines paired with a complete lunch based on traditional products. Finally, you will have the possibility of visiting the winery, looking at the barrels that store the wine you have just tasted and learn more about its production.
Finally, at the end of Etna Wine Tasting tour, at around 5.00/5.30 PM, the guide will drop you off at the starting point.
