Honey, traditionally fruit of Etna, then beekeeping, is one of the ORO d'Etna’s activity since many years.
We reserve our visitors an in-depth overview of the fascinating bees world, with the ability to view them live, to assist the extraction of honey and taste the hive products.
An unmissable opportunity to savor the full authenticity of nature while respecting the sicilian traditions.
In the same building we have a “Cantina Rustica” (rustic cellar) where our guests are invited to taste the our Etna wines and the excellent oils, obtained using the oldest production techniques; the typical preserves, treasure of the best Sicilian traditions, all in a scenic environment surrounded by a beautiful lava rock wall of 1792.
The authenticity and excellence of our products is guaranteed by constant monitoring and analysis made by the best facilities recognized at European level.
