wine tour booking

Question about booking wine tours. In some areas ( ie Napa Valley California) you can just walk into a winery to do a tasting. In others ( Chile) you often need to prebook...trying to determine what's the best option in Sicily. We have a tour booked at Planeta, Ulmo. Want to do another tasting/visit near Modica.

Am considering

COS

Occhipinti

Gulfi

and wondering if we need a reservation. I'm thinking we would for Occhipinti but not sure about the other 2. We will have 3 nights in Modica and also a transfer from Modica to Siracusa so could possibly do one of the wineries in that transfer.

We like red wine and have visited/stayed in wineries in many countries so not so much into the "tour" part ( unless they are doing something exceptional) but very interested in tasting/cellaring etc. Appreciate any other recommendations.

Contact and reserve in advance - Those are excellent options!

And perhaps also Riofavara in Ispica awarded allocates by Cronache di Gusto in 2012.
