We tasted five very distinctive wines here, three reds, a white, and a sparkling white, all top notch and delicious. I have no doubt we'll be hearing more about this label, and the Etna region generally, in the future.

Wow! Had an incredible experience at Benanti winery, definitely one of our favorite places in Sicily. The winery is family run and has a great story and history. Get the lunch, it’s sooo good. Highly recommend.

I would encourage you to contact them directly to try to arrange this, as this is not something most places in Italy do. Generally restaurant only operate starting at noon.
