Full description
Visit 2 traditional Italian wineries on this full-day group tour from Taormina. You’ll be picked up at around 9:00 AM from your accommodation in Taormina and head to Castiglione di Sicilia, a picturesque village that dates from the Medieval era. The wine produced in the Etnean region close to Castiglione is considered the finest in the area. You’ll be absolutely charmed by this town’s ancient architecture and quaint streets. Stop at your first winery, where you’ll taste locally-produced Etnean wines and an aperitif based on local products. You can also walk along the vineyards and see first-hand the wine grapes and learn about their production. At the second winery, taste 3 DOP (Protected Denomination of Origin) Etnean wines (a white, red, and rosé), paired with a complete lunch based on traditional products. Walk around the winery, see the barrels where the wine you’ve just tasted is stored, and learn more about the wine-making process. Finally, you’ll head home to Taormina at around 5:00 PM.

    Would highly recommend this tour. From Giuseppe our driver and host who provided us with amazing and enlightening information to the interesting wine tours which included sights and information of Mt Etna. The wines were amazing and lunch delicious.

    That was an all-round successful excursion. Our guide showed us everything perfectly and explained it in an interesting way. The level of the wine tastings and all presentations was very good. The excursion is recommended without hesitation. It was a lot of fun, thanks to Giuseppe!
