Here is what you will live

Etna is surely the most interesting area in Sicilian oenology. The great names of international wine criticism from Robert Parker to Monica Larner, from Debra Meiburg to Jancis Robinson have voted the wines from the Volcano amongst some of  most exclusive and prestigious wines in the world, with wines that have the potential to reach the absolute highest score possible.

Here, on Etna, the high sun-bathed mountain peak, the volcanic terrain and the vine varieties: Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Carricante and Minnella, have formed the oenological history of Sicily.

At Cavanera Etnea, Mount Etna, with its white summit, stands in all its majesty. The black, terraced terrain of the ancient lava flows contrasts with the green of the woods and the pastel colour of the old main house, which the Di Gaetano family have restored back to its original splendour.

With this wine tasting experience you'll discover the secrets of the Etna wines. Indeed the vineyards on Etna are the last to be harvested—they produce a raw product of absolute excellence which needs to be taken to the winery immediately. The wine-making process is immediate in order to preserve the grapes’ organoleptic integrity. The process occurs directly inside some specific rooms in the property. The pressing of the white grapes, and the destemming and maceration of the red grapes, is done by the latest design production machinery to preserve the unique characteristics of the raw product just harvested from the plant. The refining of the red wines occurs in French oak barriques in a room with a constant temperature and humidity.

The wine tasting includes 5 wines in a unique envinronment. What are you waiting for? Make a reservation for this special experience!
