It’s always nice to get something you love from someone special, but it feels a heck of a lot better to give.

In the least few weeks, I’ve been honored by winning the Gourmand Award in Food Culture for The New Wines of Mount Etna, the first book about Mount Etna wines in English, which Eric Asimov of The New York Times called “Excellent armchair traveling” . . . so it’s time to give back!


On December 10, we announced a 20% discount for all purchases at Etna Wine School. Have you read The New Wines of Etna? Leave a review on Amazon by December 31, 2020 and email us the link to your review — . We’ll send you a 20% discount code to use on books, courses, Etna experiences in Sicily, and merchandise (forthcoming).

But don’t just take my word for it. Here are a couple of reviews about the Intro course from recent graduates.

“Eccezionale!!! For those who are Italian like me, I highly recommend it. The materials are clearly explained and easy to understand. An exciting and fun course. I also recommend the book ‘The New Wines of Mount Etna.'”  — Giuseppe Messina, Italy
