Eruption of Taste

Journey to the town of Milo on Mount Etna to visit the Barone di Villagrande farm surrounded by organically cultivated vineyards, where for centuries the traditions of winemaking have been handed down through the generations. Have a wine tasting and later you will be visiting the Gambino Winery; the unique climate and ground conditions there determine the character of the Etna grapes and wine.

At the highest altitudes the temperature change from night to day allows a phenol and aromatic ripening, essential for the color and taste of the red grapes, and for the aroma of the white wines. Enjoy a local lunch; after lunch you will visit the last winery the Planeta Feudo di Mezzo which produces first-rate wines and olive oil.
