Private Guided Winery Tour at Planeta Sciaranuova
Sicily and its terroir, discovering Planeta
Five centuries and seventeen generations along the roads of agricultural evolution: from the small family winery in Menfi, to the wine renaissance of Sicily and the five estates of Menfi, Vittoria, Noto, Capo Milazzo and Etna.
This is a place where sustainability is a travelled road. Social projects like Parco della Salute in Palermo and great attention to art – venturing in accommodating cultural activities at the wineries, providing traveling residences like Viaggio in Sicilia for artists, the Sciaranuova Festival at the Teatro in Vigna on Etna or Santa Cecilia in Musica among the vineyards of Noto – are proof of this commitment.
Sciaranuova is located on the northern side of Etna, among lava flows and woods, not far from Passopisciaro. After planting Nerello and Carricante vineyards, the winery was built in 2012 on the southern part of the estate. The northern area has seen operations aimed at the conservative restoration of the old residences that are now the heart of hospitality.
The Etna produces six wines from Carricante, Riesling, Nerello Mascalese and Pinot Noir grapes.
Tour of the cellar and tasting of 4 Planeta white wines, followed by the tasting of 3 extra virgin olive oils produced by the company, served with typical local products.
