Went with a group of friends on what was supposed to be a “wine tasting” tour. The place was very uncosy and freezing cold. We were served with four cheap wines with some cheese and olives. And then pay the bill. That’s it. No information...More

Some olives, some cheeses and a lot of nasty wine. Aside from the final red, where the grapes weren't from the area, this stuff was mouthwash at best. Wine is harsh, unbalanced, and best used to clean your tub. We were there as part of...More

Despite your words, we will keep believing in non-stereotyped wines. If you had dedicated a longer time to the tasting we bet you would have appreciated them deeper. We ask ourselves, what would happen if you get used to good wines? Lucky us, we are...More

I wouldn’t think so. Renting a car is your best bet.

Transportation from Mazzeo to Gambino Winery (5 Replies)
Hi All, I'm staying in Mazzeo and would like to visit Gambino Winery (still open to other winery suggestions, too). We cannot rent a car since we aren't old enough, so I'm looking for other means of transport. I've checked into Sicily Limousine, Taxi Taormina etc.. . The base rates hover around 150euro round trip. Is this my best option, or are there cheaper services out there? Thanks !!

Salve Jess D! Unfortunately the wineries are located in the countryside and are not reached via public transport. Perhaps consider.... Wineries without a car: tripadvisor.com/…42525685 Vagabonda

New Travel Services offer this service and have pleasant, reliable and safe drivers, they would be my first recommendation. Read their reviews for yourself :) their prices are normally competitive too!
