My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous day touring three wineries — Murgo, Scilio, and Gambino — with Roberto as our fabulous guide. The wine tastings and food offerings were wonderful. Do not hesitate to book this tour with Roberto through the beautiful foothills of Etna wine country.!
We were a group of six and had our own private tour guide for all three wineries. The three wineries we visited were absolutely stunning with excellent tastings and food pairings. The best part of our tour though was our tour guide, Roberto. He was so passionate about giving us the best experience and he 100% accomplished this. Thanks again Roberto!
This was a great day! Our private guide chose 3 quite different wineries in different locations surrounding Mt Etna. The service, delicious food, selection of wines and views were exquisite. Such a relaxed and fun way to experience Mt Etna wines. So worth it!
We had such a great time on this wine tour! We learned a lot about the wine making process and had the pleasure of trying the wines! Everyone was so nice and accommodating!! Our tour guide/driver Fabio was fantastic!! He was very knowledgeable!
Scilio Vineyard was so picturesque. Guido accompanied us through the Vineyard and his knowledge of the winery was incredible also with his explanation of all the wines we tasted, Scilio had to be my favorite. Gambino winery was robust from the people who worked their to the many wines we so enjoyed tasting and the vineyard was breathtaking. Just a little disappointed with Don Sardo, due to lack of information of the different wines and no tour of the vineyard offered, although the food served was very good.
The tour was fantastic! The day began with a phone call from our guide Angelo confirming the pick up time in front of our B&B. We stepped out of our door and were greeted within a minute. Angelo was fantastic! His knowledge of the area and suggestions for other family activities was tremendous. He made us feel at home and it was like spending the day with a family friend. The three wineries we visited each had their own special character. We enjoyed all three and found something for our pallet at all three. We loved our tour and left totally satisfied. One extra touch was a follow up telephone call from Angelo checking in on us to see if there was anything else he could do, more information or directions. He was absolutely great!
We stopped at 3 different wineries and had an enjoyable time at each. It seems these wineries are some of the few that are open to the public as several other groups including a bus visited at the same time. The first stop was Scilio. Decent wines with a great plate of meat, cheese, olives, etc to go with wine. Second stop was Don Saro, a small winery. Wine was again good served with more food. Last stop was my favorite — Gambino, a large production winery. The wines were excellent and again another tray of food. Our private driver was Marco — very friendly and a lot of fun. Overall, we probably had a bottle each and enough food to feed a small army.
Extremely enjoyable day exploring the wineries. The guide was superb and he ensured we had a very personal touch at each of the wineries, where the owner often came to talk through the history and background to the vineyard. Gambino was the standout, beautiful spot.
This tour, while expensive, is WELL worth the money. It was one of the highlights of our 10 days in Sicily. We were lucky to have the very professional Marco who also led our private Godfather tour. It includes 3 wineries with copious amounts of tastings, food and a tour of the cellar at each winery. Don't make the mistake of having breakfast because the food on offer is copious. Gambino Winery was elegant and we now will start to directly import their wines to our home in the UK, especially their light and fruity white as well as the Nero. They ship for free if you spend over 60Euros easy to do.
We were lucky to have Guido give us the tour and tasting at Scilio. The tour was superb, with Guido being very informative and impressively professional and intelligent. We quite enjoyed hearing about Scilio's use of plants for nitrogen and reciprocal local sheep utilization. Lastly, Don Saro has a small family vibe and we really enjoyed this visit and their wines.
All in all, if you want something extra special, book this tour. It doesn't disappoint.
