The Palmento or millstone, is the ancient winemaking system still present in the Tenuta del Gelso. Here we offer training meetings and wine tastings accompanied by a rich buffet of typical local products. The proposed foods are ideal to enhance the qualities and flavors of Etna Doc wines. The tasting meetings are organized by our staff graduated at the Organizzazione Nazionale Assaggiatori Vino.
