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.
