Experience Etna wines in a unique historical urban winery

Discover the complexity and uniqueness of Etna wines, in a place that venerates its history and updates it, maintaining the historical connection between winemaking and terroir.


Our story begins in 1790 when our ancestors founded the ancient winery, that was abandoned after 200 years of operations. In 2018, 8 cousins decided to restart the family tradition, planting young vines of autochthonous varieties, with first harvest in September 2021.

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 urban environment.

You will visit the unique urban vineyards nestled between Catania city and mount Etna, 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!

With us you will be able to enjoy and be delight by the quality of the wines born on the slopes of Mount Etna, from our partners wineries and our own Etna Rosso, along with a selection of gourmet food created by the outstanding local chef Carlo Sichel.

We are on the second vintage of our red wine "Vigna Grande" IGT Terre Siciliane made with Nerello Mascalese (80%) and Nerello Cappuccio (20%), typical Etna varieties. We are currently working on our first white wine with Carricante grapes that we hope you could experience very soon. Our production is 100% organic.

We want to you to feel at home and spend a magical moment in this incredible place, that we hope will part of your holiday's special memories; whether relaxing 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 with the finest Etna wines.

We are members of The Urban Vineyards Association (UVA), an association with the goal of protecting the rural, historical, and natural heritage represented by urban vineyards and enhancing it from a cultural and tourist point of view, making it productive for the community and for the future while respecting the environment.

We also have been awarded in the categories of "Best winery in Sicily” by the Travel and Hospitality Award and "Best wine experience of Mount Etna 2022” by winetourism.com
