Toured the winery after a wonderful lunch. The winery is on the sde of Mount Etna so very interesting. All estate wine. even some Merlot on the property. Very interesting how everything was done, harvest just ending so got to see the winery in action

My partner and I visited the vineyard for the tour and wine tasting (€20 each), after booking the evening before. There was only one other couple on the tour with us, although we visited in October, so I assume it would be busier in summer. The tour guide was very knowledgable and answered all of our questions. We got to... More

My fiancé and I were lucky to be able to do a wine tasting session here - we had been struggling to book at any other winery as we had left it quite late but popped in here on the off chance. Even though we had turned up at closing time, one of the staff members was more than happy... More

Set close to the village of Milo, this winery/hotel is beautifully situated at 700 metres above sea. We were well received and were offered 4 wines to taste at no cost. The soil and wines were well explained as well as the region of origin. The superior label may be added for white grapes sourced in Milo. The crisp acidity... More

We were originally scheduled to arrive at the Port of Taormina, Italy. However, rough seas caused our ship to dock in Messina. We were very pleased to see such beautiful scenery and buildings in the Messina area as our tour headed to the Villagrande winery. There are many wineries on the slope of Mt. Etna because the soil is so... More

This was a real highlight of our trip. The location and buildings are really beautiful and make you feel extremely relaxed. We ate dinner at Villagrande both nights because the food was so good- well done Giulia! Best we had in Sicily. The staff are incredibly warm and welcoming, and made it a very special visit for us. Thank you... More

Had an amazing lunch and wine tasting here while enjoying the views of the region. Service was great and everything on the tasting menu was to our liking (luckily). Highlight was the asparagus soup with crispy mini meatballs. Not a combination I would expect but it was delicious.

I was there on April 7, 2016 and I purchased a case of wine to be shipped to Chicago, USA. It's been over a month and a half and I have not received the wine nor have I gotten any response from the winery on when I might be able to expect it. Disappointing service!!!

Dear Guest, I'm so sorry for the inconvenience you've had with the wine order and I'm sorry that your bad review is for the wine order. When you came in our company the wine was not ready for the market and we told you that the delivery time would be about two months. We usually reply to all requests of... More

Sometimes you stumble upon a lovely place that is totally unexpected. From the moment we entered the reception gates and met Alfonso the Villa manager and lovely Maria we knew we had found a gem. We were not disappointed. The view took our breath away. The vineyard is carved into the hillside with Mount Etna in the distance. The sea... More
