Description Etna wine tasting, vineyard & palmento tour and wine cellar tour

In the middle of the village of Passopisciaro, near the north face of the Etna volcano, you will find the wine cellar (cantina) of Calcagno wines. These award-winning wines are praised for their excellent quality and unique flavour profiles.

During the wine tasting, you will have the opportunity to taste 3 or 4 of these best wines (depending on availability). All the wines are DOC wines. DOC stands for "Denominazione di Origine Controllata". It is a designation of origin and says more about the quality and what goes into the bottle of wine. The wine is accompanied by locally baked fresh bread, drizzled with homemade olive oil, two types of local cheese and delicious salami.

If you prefer a more elaborated experience, you can also opt for the tasting with additional complementary appetizers, such as a fresh omelette, a tasty salad of chickpeas and authentic bruschettas. With this, you choose a culinary adventure that stimulates all your senses!

At Calcagno's wine cellar, your taste experience is central. Thus, during the tasting, you have the freedom to indicate your preference, whether white, rosé or red. Let yourself be taken on a journey of discovery through these beautiful wines as you explore the wine cellar, palmento and vineyard.

Before (or after) the tasting, you will have a tour of the vineyard, visit the palmento and visit the wine cellar.

Please note: this wine tasting is not a full lunch, but really a taste experience where the tasting of the wine and the unique surroundings are central. The appetizers can be compared to an aperitivo.

Discover the authentic flavours of Sicily with the wines of Calcagno. Book your wine tasting now and be enchanted by Giusy's passion for wine and tradition.
