This Etna wine tour, among our day trips from Messina, is dedicated to those who love wine and want to try the local production. On our way from Messina to Mount Etna, we will have a first stop in the famous town of Taormina, one of the most relevant tourist destinations of Sicily. After a visit to the historical center with its monuments and fashion boutiques, we will continue our day tour to Mount Etna discovering one of the typical Sicilian wineries based on the volcanic slopes. It is not necessary to be a sommelier to fully appreciate a glass of Sicilian wine. We will bring you with us discovering a local winery and meeting the winegrower and owner of the estate. He will introduce you to the characteristics of the local grapes, made so special and precious by the volcanic soils and by the great amount of sun to whom they are exposed. After having visited the cellar, it’s up to us to experience the best wine tasting in Sicily and savor the quality of the locally produced Etna Red wine. You can try different kinds of Etna wines accompanied by a good variety of local and tasty Sicilian food: you will see why this is one of our most requested Sicily day tours.

Highlight of the trip
1st and foremost Katia was simply the best. Very passionate about her island and her tour. She was and the tour was the best part of the trip for us. The winery was top notch and the food was outstanding. Honestly can’t say enough great things about this tour and how we were treated like family. The info provided was fun and fact filled and the day was outstanding. I would actually take this tour again we had so much fun. The drop off back to the port included an unexpected but great stop for a cannoli and gelato. Katia and her staff are top notch professionals and this tour should not be missed.
