Etna Wine Forum wine event in Biancavilla

Last Sunday Etna Wine Forum organized a wine event in Biancavilla, just 30 min west of Catania. A nice mix of new producers and them been on the market for longer time. πŸ₯‚πŸŒ‹πŸ·

Found many new interesting wineries, some organic and some not. It is lovely to see many families starting own small wineries on family owned lands. Each event has new wines to be discovered. Here some I tasted, two I know from before but had to take the chance again:
