Make your way to the Planeta Buonivini winery, located in the beautiful southern countryside near Noto. Completed in 2003, the ‘invisible’ winery was carefully designed to integrate into the surrounding landscape and features innovative underground architecture. A marriage of long-lived winemaking traditions with the newest technologies is on display in features such as a rebuilt palmento (millstone) using historic elements from early 20th-century fermentation pits.
Begin with a walk through the vineyards and a short tour of the winemaking facilities, where you can watch the production process in action. Then, sample the finished product for yourself with a tasting of four Planeta wines paired with appetizers and the estate’s own extra-virgin olive oil.
Finish the flavorful experience with a 3-course lunch of regional specialties such as Modica pies, sun-dried cherry tomatoes, pasta, and fresh seafood from the neighboring fishing village of Marzamemi. Round out the feast with coffee, fresh-baked biscuits and — of course — more wine!
