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

We had a great day with Simon who was very attentive to our enjoyment of the day. The wineries were very interesting if your into to that sort of thing, which we are. The wines we tasted were very good. We had to miss out Catania as the weather was shocking by then but Simon made every effort to make sure we were fully happy with his suggested alternative. He is very easy to be with and has an excellent knowledge of the area.
