Come and join us at Passopisciaro in the heart of the Etna winemaking area.

We will show you our family winery and the cellars where we look after our barrels, our vineyards and the volcanic landscape.

Taste the produce of a unique landbubbles and good wine with a selection of typical dishes and products from the Etna region.


A visit to the Antichi Vinai 1877 winery lets you experience and discover an ancient art in a unique, beautiful landscape where Mount Etna holds centre stage.

You can feel the family history in the air at every step in this place full of memories and hard work. We will share the story of the Gangemi family, inseparable from the story of the wine we have produced here for over a century.

We want you to feel – as much as possible – at home.

The barrel-cellars

Cut into the lava basalt, the cellars are located in the best zone of the ETNA DOC area.

The first ageing cellar is a silent “waiting room”. It holds a wide variety of barrels where wines mature for years in a space that protects their repose.

In the second, like a little sanctuary, you’ll be amazed at our older oak and chestnut barrels, imposingly middle-aged (some are already 50 years old).

The view

The tasting takes place in the living area, which has a stunning view across the Alcantara Valley, where you can see extinct craters and vineyards spread across ancient lava hills. The show is truly spectacular.

Book your visit to us in whatever way suits you, staying with friends or with the family.
