It is a place run by the Planeta wine house. It is simply awesome. The place is a calm serene resort with plenty to do. The winery visit is a must, the cooking classes with the resident chef are fun and useful, you learn about dishes as also about the Sicilian way of life. The wines served at the lodging are delicious and the best part, they don’t just serve their own wines but other famous ones from around the world, that too at prices that will make you want to never leave. And the views – oh the stunning panoramic undulating verdant views – simply stunning. Personal lavender gardens, ample sunshine, parking aplenty (!) you couldn’t want more. I also checked out Regaleali Estate, Contrada Regaleali in Sicily and Shalai Resort in Etna.
