This Taormina and Mount Etna wine tour from Catania is one of our best-day tours from Catania that will make you experience the flavours of the local grapes, growing and taking their purest characteristics from the lava soil and its minerals.
The first destination of this Taormina & Mount Etna wine tour from Catania is Taormina. There, we will discover Corso Umberto with all its ancient buildings, handicrafts, and souvenir shops, the beautiful landscapes from IX April Square, and the unique atmosphere of this tiny but charming Sicilian city.
After this cultural immersion, we will move towards our winery, well-positioned at the base of the northern side of Mt Etna, where the fertile volcanic soils gave birth to sweet grapes used to produce the wines we will drink.
Meeting the owner and tasting his wines together with typical products will lead us to live, even if for a couple of hours, an indelible experience of Mount Etna wine tasting that will make you come back on a future holiday.
