    Bellissimo!

    We can very much recomend this trip. The winery was absolutley amazing, both the scenery and the wine. Friendly and beautiful place. Castelbuono was also very nice. The trip to get there was also very good, a nice coachride along the coastline and then the climbing upwards the mountain. Nice and friendly guide on the trip and on the winery as well We definitely also recomend to buy some of the wines at the winery

    made our holiday

    From the very start we were made to feel very welcome from Esther the tour guide. Met at the statue in Cefalu on time and had a short drive along the coast to the winery. We were greeted with a smile and were made to feel very welcome there. The wines were lovely and had a lovely little plate of olives and cheese. We then got to buy the wines. This was about an hour and half. Afterwards we went back on the bus to castelbuono where Esther guided us to a lovely tasting of local treats and had about 45 mins in the town which was just enough here. I would definitely recommend this tour as it felt personal and you got to see the lovely views of Sicily greenery in all its finery.

    A good way to see the Italian countryside, and enjoy wine!

    My family and I found the tour interesting and fun. We didn't know before the tour that a look in the city nearby and tasting of different traditional food, was included. That was a nice surprise! The wine tasting was also a nice experience. We tasted four types of wine and got a interesting tour around in the wine yard and cellar. The only thing I missed was more information about how to recognize the smell, describe the taste and how to find our the alcohol level and sugar level my looking at the wine glass. I felt that I had a good time, and enjoyed the wine, but I didn't felt that I become a "wine expert"/connoisseur :-) maybe that was to much to ask for.
