The basics

The family-owned Gambino Winery sits in the northern foothills of Mt. Etna’s wine region, and produces a number of DOC red and white wines from grapes grown on the slopes of Europe’s largest active volcano. Most tastings at the winery include samples of a variety of wines paired with local cheeses, olive oils, and other Sicilian specialties; true gourmands can opt for a full wine-pairing lunch at the winery. Otherwise, combine your wine tasting with sightseeing by joining a tour that also stops at the nearby village of Linguaglossa overlooking the Alcantara Valley, the historic coastal town of Taormina, or the Silvestri Craters high above the volcano’s peak.
