We perform guided tours of Vinicola Benanti during the week. We start with an excursion on the vineyard Monte Serra, which is an ex crater of the Etna. Here we have the Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio vines, with major part pre-philoxera and older than 100 years. We will continue by visiting the ‘palmento’ which dates from 1700. Following the tour there will be a local brunch accompanied with our most selective volcanic wines.

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.

A gorgeous winery and surrounding vineyards, wonderful owners, and most importantly very tasty wine. We were hosted here, with a larger group, for a tour and private dinner and it was the highlight of our trip to Sicily. Thank you to the Benanti family.

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.
