Guided tour of an Etna winery
Our Etna Wine Tour gives you the opportunity to visit one of the best wineries of our volcano, located in the eastern territory of the Etna volcano, about 500 m above sea level.
The microclimate of the wine cellar is characterized by remarkable temperature variations, due to the altitude of the volcano (3,360 m) which delay the maturation of the product, bringing both freshness and fragrance to the wines. The characteristics of the volcanic soils, on the other hand, give the vineyards a strong minerality, which is felt in all the products of the territory.
Thanks to these very special conditions, elegant, complex, savory wines are produced, with an identity that stands out in the Italian and international wine scene.
The visit to the wine cellar will be guided by an AIS Sommelier, you will be surprised by the stories about the production processes, winemaking methods and conservation of the various types of wine.
Then, we will move to the magnificent rooms, where you will taste 5 local wines together with the tasting of many typical products.
During the olfactory and tasting itinerary, the Sommeliers will make you appreciate the peculiar aromas and characteristics of the Etna wines.
