Part of our tour in Sicily was the winery Passopisciaro. Absolutely excellent wine. From our cruise ship, sicilyshoretours.com took us to Taormina and then to the foot of Mt. Etna for a tour of Passopisciaro. 6 of us. And a wonderful delicious light lunch. Would highly recommend this winery. Consistently rates in the 90's in Wine Spectator. Spectacular day!!! And...

We visit Planeta Estate in July as a family. We were amazed by Vera Ruso and the knowledge she imparted regarding the wine. The actual vineyard was beautiful and set up so nicely for us. Lunch was the best meal I had in Sicily and I think they made the whole trip informative, educational, and delicious. Thank you.

I was staying in Taormina for my birthday and scheduled a tour, tasting, and three course lunch at Planeta Sciara Nuova (about an hour drive). It was the best present I could have given myself! Vera Russo was a charming and engaging hostess. I learned so much about Planeta, the Mt. Etna terroir, and the wines. Some of the standouts... More

Vera Russo hosted my family of 5, incl 3 teenagers, on a tour of the vineyard, winery and then walked us through a tasting of Planeta's wines and olive oils. A good story told by a very knowledgeable and passionate guide. Zero pressure to buy anything, and in any case, having been long time Planeta fans, we didn't need to... More

We have chosen an option to taste wines accompanied with light snacks and were pleased with quality of the local products. Unfortunately, we have not seen the wine production line, but we spent almost 2 hours discussing all aspects of wine making and agricultural business/rural life with Vera Russo, the guide @ Sciara Nuova. A couple of important notes: 1)... More

We had an early visit to Passopisciaro, which is Andrea Franchetti’s winery on Mount Etna in Sicily. Very interesting. This winery was more expensive than most others that we visited, at 20 euro per person, but the visit was lengthy and quite nice. We visited each of their vineyard plots at various heights on the slopes of Mt. Etna. We... More
