Gambino Winery (Vini Gambino) Tours
Read MoreShow Less
From a road winding through the Sicilian countryside, family owned Gambino Winery (Vini Gambino) appears atop a hillside in the Etna wine region. The unique climate and soil of the area produces some of Italy’s tastiest wines, both white and red. Most wines are derived from either Nerello mascalese or Nerello cappuccio grapes, many of which are given DOC designation. Innovative winemakers in this region are making some of Sicily’s best wines, and while not all are available to taste Gambino Winery allows you to sample quite a few.
Mount Etna being an ancient volcano (the largest in Europe,) views from the winery are scenic and the surrounding landscape is beautiful to take in. There’s nothing like drinking a glass of wine right in the place in which it was produced, and there’s no shortage of great wine or views at Gambino. The winery also serves delicious food, cheeses, and local olive oils.
Gambino Winery is located just a short drive from the towns of Taormina or Catania, in Linguaglossa, located on the northern side of the volcano. You can taste wine daily from 11 am to 7 pm, though advance reservations are recommended. It’s 10 Euros to partake in a tasting.
Address: Contrada Petto Dragone, Linguaglossa CT, Italy
Hours: 11 am - 7 pm
