The property is gorgeous and the staff is friendly. Loved the history. The wine was decent and the bottles were overpriced.

Hands down one of the best wineries you will ever visit! Not only is the wine delicious, the staff, vineyards, and grounds are top notch. It would be a huge mistake to be in Sicily and not spend a few hours here!

I would encourage you to contact them directly to try to arrange this, as this is not something most places in Italy do. Generally restaurant only operate starting at noon.
