Visit the best wineries in Sicily!


We drive first to Milo for a visit to the Barone di Villagrande Winery that has belonged to the Nicolosi family since ancient times. The farm lies in the heart of the d. o. c. Etna and Etna Bianco Superiore appellation zone. The volcanic soil and the typical mountain climate create a unique condition allowing the production of wines with moderate alcoholic content but rich in fixed acidity and extracts.
Later, we will drive to Planeta Winery, one of the premier wine estates of Sicily, and a veritable fine wine empire. The company has vineyards and estates all over the island of Sicily including the newest estate Sciara Nuova.
Visit of the cellars and wine tasting.

A Recent Review of this tour

Simon was the best guide! He was very flexible when our cruise line changed our port. We were able to taste and tour 3 separate wineries. Planeta was by far our favorite. Each winery gave us a tour of their grounds, educated us on their history and how they make the wine. Cottanera made us a delicious lunch that we still dream about. While driving between wineries, Simon told us the history of the island. He stopped to allow us to take pictures. We were back to the boat with plenty of time. Thanks, Simon!
