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.
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.
GOLF + SPA + WINE
Sicily is all known for its ability to help visitors relax. For some of us, that means a round of golf before lunch, or a couple of hours in the spa. When you’re done, we’re have a light wine-pairing lunch followed by a relaxing walk through the vines and a tour of the winery. Let us know if you would like to experience this version of paradise.
ETNA FROM ABOVE
Most of the accounts of Mount Etna are from the ground, looking up. We offer the unique opportunity to see the mountain from above. Over the course of our thirty-minute helicopter flight, we can see every contrada, the lava flows and villages, the sea and the Italian Peninsula (weather providing). After landing, we continue our experience in the vineyards and wineries responsible for etna’s wine renaissance. Do you feel like flying? Contact us to reserve your flights.
THE 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, winery and vineyard visits, and a guided wine tasting paired with seasonal Sicilian foods. Contact us to request this experience.
