Wine Tour

These are the places where famous wines are produced: Etna DOC, Cavanera Ripa di Scorciavacca and Cavanera Rovo delle Coturnie and the prodigious Gaudensius, a classic method sparkling wine from Nerello Mascalese grapes harvested in advance of their natural maturation.
The wine tour offers intense moments living from the stories of the guides through a universe of natural and anthropological peculiarities that characterize the world of Etna and the production of wine according to Firriato.
The route moves through the avenue that runs alongside the main vineyard until it reaches its highest point, seeing the stratifications of the Etna soil formed in the last 500,000 years.
