Etna Urban WineryWe want to bring the Etna Wine making and tasting into an urban environment keeping the historical connection between winemaking and terroir.
Our winery is adding to the diversity of the San Gregorio region, an area which has historically produced wine but now sits at the outer fringes of Catania.
Etna Urban Winery gives the visitor the opportunity to enjoy the history of Etna wine making in Sicily, to visit an urban vineyard, to learn about the territory and to taste four Etna wines in a unique historical semi-urban environment.
Walk an urban vineyard at your own pace while discovering dry stone walls and an old domed building, soon to be renovated. You will walk through one of the few oak forests still in the area (now protected) and an olive grove.
Enjoy and experience the quality of the wines born on the slopes of Mount Etna, from our partners wineries, along with a selection of gourmet food created by the outstanding local chef Carlo Sichel. The partner wineries include Tenuta delle Terre Nere, Masseria Setteporte, Cantina Russo and Famiglia Statella.
Learn about the traditional way to produce wine in Sicily. You will visit our 17th century Palmento (winery) that is host to two 10,000-litre wooden barrels and an old wine press that was once able to process around 8 tons of grapes!
Face the difficult choice of whether to relax around a lovely Sicilian courtyard, surrounded by our collection of succulents and hydrangeas, or lay down while looking at Etna Mountain and enjoying the summer breeze. Do not worry – both options include an exquisite and refreshing glass of wine.
Let the children have their own fun by looking for different stone animals made by a local artist. We have hidden them around the winery along the adult’s track so look up and down to help them find them. Ask for the details at the entrance of the winery.
