The transport is comfortable and our guide was friendly. There is only one winery we visited. It was picturesque and the wine tasting was endless although not a wide selection. Each wine was first accompanied with a selection of cheeses. We also had olives, eggplant and bread with olive oil. From here it was short trip to the restaurant where we were served a pre set menu of 4 or 5 shared dishes and a jug of red and white wine plus water. The restaurant location is lovely and full of locals which is a good sign.

Seot 2019. A fun, informative tour through an Etna winery topped off with a gorgeous wine tasting and pairing with local cheeses and other delicacies. After the tour a lunch with wine and some unusual appetizers you have to taste to believe. It was a boisterous, happy tour meeting people from around the globe. Highly recommend.
