The Etna Wine School offers unique and flexible educational opportunities for wine lovers, gastronomic adventurers, journslists and those in the wine trade. All of our wine experiences are presented in English and designed by our lead educator, Benjamin Spencer.

Our non-certificate wine courses are designed to educate and entertain your palate.


Our half- and full-day courses include expert-led visits to vineyards, wineries, and other unique settings on Mount Etna and within the DOC production area. For those interested in experiences lasting longer than two days, we are able to create multi-day programs on request.


In addition to our short courses (listed above), we offer a unique opportunity for your guests to get an in-depth experience with the wines of Mount Etna in the comfort of the hotel.* 

The ETNA mezza MASTERCLASS and ETNA MASTERCLASS are two special wine courses that focus on the traditions and contemporary practices used in the vineyards and wineries on Mount Etna. Each course includes an expert-led wine tasting and a professional lesson.

Contact us to request these courses for your hotel patrons, private villa, or as an amenity to your destination management services. 


We are happy to offer our educational programs and additional consulting services for destination management companies and those in the wine trade seeking professional solutions in the Catania area and Mount Etna.
