Our Half-Day Courses and Full-Day Courses include expert-led visits to vineyards, wineries, and other unique settings on Mount Etna. For those interested in experiences longer than our Two-Day Course, we are able to create multi-day programs on request. Contact us to request this experience.

VOLCANO + WINE

We know you’re curious. We are too. Some times understanding Etna wines means you have to go to the source. This course goes off-road and up craters before we even arrive at the winery for a wine-pairing lunch and tour of the facility. If you’re up for it (we know you are) send us a flare and we’ll get you there.

STYLIZED WINE COURSES

Do you love sparkling wines or natural wines? Or maybe you like sweet wines or wines grown on volcanic craters? We have one course designed specifically for those interested in vintage variations and other experiences dedicated exclusively to grape varieties or old vines. Whatever your passion, we’ve got you covered. All you have to do is ask.

FOOD + WINE

We’ve done our research, partly because it’s our job, but mostly because we love this place. Our Food + Wine experience combines traditional Catanese cuisine and wine from Mount Etna for an in-depth exploration of Eastern Sicily. Each class is presented with our partners, on location in their kitchens and laboratories. Courses include tastings or how-to experiences with a lunch and something to drink. Contact us to request this experience.

CIRCUMETNEA TRAIN + WINE TASTING

The Circumetnea train once served the vineyards and wineries of Mount Etna as a means to bring their products to the historic Port of Riposto and the City of Catania. Today, the train serves as a conduit between the past and present. Travel with us, through the lava fields and small historic towns of Mount Etna. This tour includes luxury transportation, a ride on the Circumetnea Train, winery and vineyard visits, and a guided wine tasting paired with seasonal Sicilian foods.
