    Winery Visit & Tasting at the Tascante Estate

Winery Visit & Tasting at the Tascante Estate

  • City: Castiglione di Sicilia
  • Duration: Approximately 3.5 hours (including transportation from/to Taormina)

Relax and enjoy a half-day wine tasting on the slopes of Mount Etna in northeastern Sicily, where the volcanic soil results in exceptional wines.

Overview

In this tour and taste you will encounter the treasured Sicilian Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grapes, the uniquely aromatic fruit used to produce red wines on the volcano, Mount Etna. The rich volcanic soils of Etna, combined with an altitude of up to 1,000 meters above sea level (some of the highest vineyards in Europe), produce wines of immense character and complexity without the excessive weight that characterizes other Sicilian red wines from lower altitudes.

Departing from and returning to your hotel in Taormina, you will visit Tasca d'Almerita's Tascante Estate, whose name is a combination of the words "Tasca" and "Etna." It is located on the northern slopes of Mount Etna at around 700 meters above sea level. After a tour of the vineyards, you will taste three different wines produced from these grapes: Tascante, Ghiaia Nera and Buonora. Your tasting will include an assortment of local salumi and cheeses.

Here on the slopes of the impressive volcano, you will be immersed in the fascinating morphology of the land with its agricultural abundance and the effects of the successive lava streams that have shaped the age-old experience of the people who make this place irresistible.

Please note that this service is available with or without transportation from Taormina. Please choose the option best suited to your needs.
