We will pick you up directly from your accommodation to take you on a discovery of the wines of DOC Etna.
In the first stop on our tour, we will stop in Passopisciaro, a small hamlet of Castiglione di Sicilia, at Irene Badalà‘s Winery, a family-run company whose philosophy is that “wine is produced in the vineyard”, thanks to the care that blends ancient and new knowledge.
After a walk through the vineyard’s rows, cultivated with Etna’s native varieties, during which we will discover the ancient rural culture of Etna viticulture, we will taste 3 wines accompanied by local traditional products.
The second stop of our tour, is Filippo Grasso’s Agricultural Company in Randazzo, a small Etna reality, where viticulturists have been cultivating only native varieties for four generations.
The experience includes a pleasant walk through the vineyards to understand what makes the Etna terroir unique, followed by tasting of EVO oil and Etna wines accompanied by traditional Sicilian gastronomic products. A real Etna experience, a full immersion in the daily life of a small wine company.
