Etna wines are amazing
Apr 2019 • Solo
I did a tour with fiorella guide in the countryside near Catania.. We visit 2 wineries... I am from Chile so I have a lot of wine experience... Tha Patria winery was incredible (my favorite) its wine are really good. The tour was very informative and private (I appreciate not to be in a big group). I really recommend the Etna Wines (made with specific greaps endemics) red and white. The second winery was more just a wine tasting (with a lot of wine), with some examples of Sicilian wines that are made not only with the Etna influence. It was a good to have the contrast. We drink some cabernet souvignon of the area... Anyway, after the experience I know what a Etna Wine means.... Really recommended the tour.

Very services minded
When the tour we wanted was fully booked, they manage to find another driver to arrange another tour for us. The driver was said to be Italian speaking, bu he knew enough English for us to communicate.
The driver was very good. He showed us many beautiful places on the way and also made shore that we had something to eat before the wine tasting.
The wine tasting were good also with one small and one big vineyards.
