Welcome to the Gambino Winery
Share your passion for wine, grapes, and laughter.
Nestled off the coast of the Italian mainland, on the beautiful island of Sicily, you'll find our stunning gem - the Gambino Winery. Perched on the side of Mt Etna, an active volcano overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the unique climate and soil conditions of this picturesque location is the perfect setting to produce the world’s most exquisite wines. The Gambino Winery is an extraordinary vineyard that continues to cultivate a variety of wines you will savor time and time again!
"Many things in life are not planned. Sometimes the best things in life happen naturally. My parents did not set out to own a thriving vineyard. Little by little, they began to purchase neighboring lands. Here we are today at Gambino Winery. Our journey is continuous."
- Francesco Raciti
"Wine and food was delicious!"
The food and wine have been delicious and were very very well paired with the awesome view you can enjoy visiting this winery at Mt. Etna. We met several staff and one of the owners. In advance I would like to thank you all for making our visit very interesting and culinary exciting! We will be returning some time in the next years, and I am definitly looking forward to meet you again and enjoy all the delicious things you offer!
Tip for visitors: Pair your visit with the Afternoon Etna experience from: Silicy life Corporation (Taormina). It is worth every bit of money and takes you to great non touristy places on the island!
Thx for making our day perfect!

"Out of this world!!"
Taking a stop at Gambino Winery is a MUST-- if you are wine touring in Sicily, make this your first...and maybe even your only stop! We arrived without a reservation (although it is wiser to make a reservation, maybe they weren't as busy at 11AM) and the staff was friendly and information. We got a quick tour of the ground (gorgeous breezy August day) and then for 10 Euro we tried over 8 wines and had some delicious bread, cheese, and salami. You can pay more for a full lunch, it was just a little too early for us. They leave the wine on the table so you can continue to sample! Left with 2 (reasonably priced) bottlesand the best memories!
"SOME OF THE BEST WINE WE EVER TASTED"
We had Sicily Limousine (see my review of them) take us to Gambino Winery for a wine tasting tour. It was a fantastic experience. I'm not a big wine drinker but I sampled all five of the wines they presented and my wife and I enjoyed everyone one of them. Our waiter Fabio spoke excellent English, was very friendly, and was very knowledgeable about all the wines and the wine making process.
They serve excellent food to go along with the wines like meats, cheeses, sausage, olives, sun dried tomatoes, etc.
This is absolutely a must see place to go. It cost us 25 Euros each and you have to make reservations. It was money and time well spent. The drive to get to it is beautiful as you go through an evergreen forest on Mt. Etna to get there. Even if you don't drink wine much like me you'll enjoy this place. If you are a wine drinker you'll be as close to heaven as you can get. We'll go back here when we return to Sicily in 2018. Great place!
The intense ruby of Duvanera hints at the rich flavors which await you. Juicy black plums, cherry, and violets intermingle with vanilla and a touch of spice to create a well-balanced wine capable of complementing a variety of dishes. With a ripe first attack, Duvanera finishes with a smooth, lingering finish.
