We perform guided tours of Vinicola Benanti during the week. We start with an excursion on the vineyard Monte Serra, which is an ex crater of the Etna. Here we have the Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio vines, with major part pre-philoxera and older than 100 years. We will continue by visiting the ‘palmento’ which dates from 1700. Following the tour there will be a local brunch accompanied with our most selective volcanic wines.

An historic winery, one of the first to introduce Sicilian wines to the world. Lovely location, good quality wines, great hospitality. Run at this moment from the owner Giuseppe Benanti and his two sons...is one of the best in Etna area.

Today we had best ever Etna wine tasting,I thanks Benanti Winery for the excellent wines and hospitality .I think that who want to taste Etna wines must first taste Benanti wines, my favourite "Serra della contessa".

Sicilian wine tasting tends to go a certain way: tour, history, antipasti, wine. That's very interesting, but also somewhat limiting - I don't want to do it more than once or twice during a vacation! But if you're going to be spending two or three...More

Was this a private tour of the winery only or part of a larger tour? We are visiting the are next month and will have a car. Did you make reservations in advance?

You can book a tour directly with the winery and it is advisable to book in advance
My husband and I are planning a driving trip around Sicilly next Feb. 2016. We heard about your winery in our paper. Is it open in winter, and is it available for a couple who are not part of a tour? Can you please give me directions to the winery if all is OK for a visit. Can you advise of accommodation you would recommend nearby?
