Taste Travel
Etna Wines

With her majestic presence and nutrient-rich soil, Mount Etna has watched over Sicily for millennia. To mark 150 years of Grand Hotel Timeo, A Belmond Hotel, we celebrate “la muntagna”, in Belmond's Taste Travel film series.

Meet Head Sommelier Veronica Bonelli, for an introduction to the world of Eta wines as she unveils anecdotes and the stories behind the grape varieties. Then, follow Michele Faro, owner of the Pietradolce winery, as he explores the crafts and traditions of the local Etna grape harvest — resulting this year in the creation of a unique bottle of Etna wine, exclusively designed for our iconic residence. Unearth the history and flavours of Etna wines, and raise a glass to 150 years of the Grand Hotel Timeo.
