About
On the eastern side of the Etna volcano, in the woods of the National Park and facing the sea of Taormina, the Gambino vineyards are a pleasure for your senses and for your heart. A Pleasure for your sight, because they represent one of the best models of Etna vineyards of high altitude: in an exclusive natural environment, at 800 meters above sea level, the vineyards lay on sunny and airy terracing that have a breathtaking panorama. A pleasure for your sense of smell, for the unmistakable perfumes of the volcano vegetation. A pleasure for your heart, because the vineyards and wine are great passion that, for over twenty years, involves and guides the Raciti Gambino family.

What a wonderful experience, we visited as a large family group, the experience was incredible from Nino’s warm welcome with a chilled white. A fascinating and funny chat in the beautiful gardens about the vineyard was followed by an insight into the production process and rounded off with a truly delicious selection of Sicilian produce and some more fabulous wines. Nino was the consummate host from beginning to end and the two young children were catered for so wonderfully.
My parents chose several wines to buy on the day and we ordered to be delivered to the UK easily.
This experience is excellent value and will absolutely not disappoint.

We visited Gambino on the final afternoon of our trip to Sicily and it truly was the highlight of our trip. We were welcomed by our hosts with a glass of rose and enjoyed the beautiful views while they explained the history of the vineyards.
We opted for the “full tasting” which included delicious couscous, various cheese and sausages to compliment the 4 red and white wines we sampled. Our sommelier Nino was a wonderful and knowledgable host who made our afternoon really special. The whole experience is extremely good value, as are the wines which are available to purchase should you wish. Personally
I had ordered 8 bottles of the red Duvanera and white wines using the website, to be shipped to England before I had even left the table. An absolute “must” during your stay in Sicily.

The views from this lovely place are spectacular, its the highest vineyard on Etna. Before we even entered the building we were welcomed with a glass of lovely white wine. There are different wine and food tastings, we chose the vintage tasting. We started with 2 whites and a rose, then 3 reds and then 2 very special reds accompanied with a plate of cheese, olives, bread etc to bring out the flavours of each wine. Our sommelier was excellent, really knowledgeable and really friendly as were the rest of the team. We were also taken downstairs to see the process. It is free to ship wine to the UK if you spend over 60 euros, cant recommend enough.

Gambino is a large scale winery with an equally large tasting building situated high above Taormina. The view is lovely outside but there is no view in the tasting room which is set up like a crowded restaurant. We had the wine tasting with full menu. The food was ample and the wines fine. The wines were presented at the table with a friendly but brief and difficult to hear description. Overall, the experience was pleasant until time to pay. There was no direction as to where and how to settle up. After a considerable wait behind others buying bottles, we were told rather rudely that our credit card was not acceptable (although it was accepted everywhere else in Sicily). The checkout process rather ruined an otherwise pleasant experience. Would choose another winery next time around.

The Gambino Vini is unique. We were met in the parking lot by Francesco Racit, the owner of the winery. He gave us a brief background of the winery and led us into the tasting room, where we sampled some Rossos, some Rosatos and some blancos. Each wine was accompanied by foods that complimented the unique taste Various members of the winery management discussed the qualities and nuances of each f the wines. During the tasting, I had told Sr. Raciti hat I was interested in a more in depth introduction to his wines. He and I then went into anther room where e allowed me to taste some of the older and some of the younger vintages. When we returned to the tasting room, he asked my wife an a few other people tp accompany him to the basement to see how the wines were aged.
I became a true believer of the wines of this family owned boutique winery

Fantastic. Very helpful hosts, were able to try generous amounts of wine and a wonderful selection of food if you go for the full tasting (a whole meal, don't eat beforehand!). Lovely wide selection of wines, explained to us well and the setting and views are simply fantastic. We also bought some wine on site, very reasonable for such good quality. Highly recommend for a wine tasting.

We were a group of travellers from Canada, and enjoyed a wonderful wine tasting and food experience at this beautiful winery on our way back from visiting Mount Etna. The variety of wines was outstanding, and the pairings with the incredible selections of foods was first class. Beautiful views of the region as well, and to cap it off, we had a tour of the winery, conducted by an extremely knowledgeable young man called Nino. He was charming and hilarious, and we enjoyed his teaching immensely. This was one of the most interesting and informative wine tours that I have ever experienced. This is a must do if you are in the region. These Etna wines are starting to make an international name for themselves. The vineyards here are only 830m above sea level and have ash in the soil. The temperature swings in the day give the vines a unique sweetness.

As soon as you arrive a glass of wine is thrust into your hand while they tell you about the vineyard!
We then did the food and wine tasting. The food was lovely and extremely filling: local cheese/ meats/ sausages / bread and oil / couscous/ cannoli.
The wine is limitless. They leave the bottles on your table so you can HELP yourself to MORE! It’s like the best tasting ever.
The team there kindly let us try all 8 wines (you’re only supposed to taste 4). So we could pick our favourites.
They ship wines home for free is you spend €60! Which is brilliant.

My wife and I were on a Mediterranean cruise and Sicily/Messina was one of our stops. We booked an excursion that took us through the local sites and Gambino Vini was the show stopper and we enjoyed the winery, vineyard, food pairing and atmosphere of Gambino. This is a must stop place and we’ll definitely be going again in the future.

PS - They also deliver to the US!!!!!! 👍🏼

We were only in Sicily for and couple of nights to hike Mt. Etna and asked our guide for a winery recommendation. Without hesitation, Luca suggested Gambino and our visit here proved him correct. I liked every wine I tasted and appreciated the quality of the various wines we tried. The accompanying food was given in healthy portions and added to the experience. The service was above and beyond and Federica made our overall visit even more enjoyable. I would recommend this winery to anyone looking for quality wine served by pleasant and knowledgeable staff while in Sicily.
