Palmento La Rosa
Palmento La Rosa was built in 1791 and used as a wine press until a few years ago. Palmento La Rosa lies in the national park “Parco del Etna” at the foot of Mount Etna. Thanks to its high altitude of around 700m, you have an excellent view right to the Costa dei Ciclopi. The location guarantees a mild and pleasant climate even in the summer.
In 2006, a vineyard with Etna grapes was planted on the 9,000 square metre fenced-in estate. Palmento’s terrace is surrounded by a Mediterranean garden with fruit trees, roses, cacti, palm trees and other indigenous plants.
“Palmento” means millstone or winepress. Wine was pressed here from 1827. The building’s structure and appeal were maintained during renovation and the 10-metre “torchio”, press beam, still dominates the vast main room.
Together with the solid chestnut doors and floors and the artful wooden ceiling, the white roughcast walls create a unique atmosphere. Besides their rooms, guests are invited to use this 300-square-metre “salotto” – the living and dining room –, which is laid out on three levels. Two fireplaces, comfortable Sicilian furniture and settees invite to relax. We have a pool table for some fun and games. Satellite TV, internet access and a library are also available.
We have 4 individually furnished en-suite double rooms for you. The rooms are spacious and have wooden flooring.
Enjoy your dinner here with us in the idyllic ambiance of Palmento La Rosa’s salone or its terrace and try Sicilian and Mediterranean specialities. We have a choice of regional wines on offer such as Outis and Rovitello from the well-known vineyards Biondi and Benanti.
Dinner consists of an aperitivo, various antipasti, first and second course, dessert and coffee. A light a tasty lunch can be arranged.
We prepare our meals with fresh, local ingredients. Therefore, please book your dinner a day in advance.
Palmento La Rosa is ideal as a base for exploring Sicily's southeast. Around Mount Etna, there are many intriguing villages and baroque towns worth seeing. The volcano can be ascended with your own transport or by organised tour. Taormina, Catania and Acireale provide international fashion and art. The towns of Siracusa, Noto, Piazza Armerina and Caltagirone are ideal for one-day sightseeing trips.
We are happy to arrange individual theme tours and organise opera and theatre tickets as well as transport. Let us know your plans and check for prices.
An unforgettable treat is our wine tasting with BBQs or typical antipasti at different wine-growing estates.
Far away from mass tourism, Palmento La Rosa is a sophisticated winery, which creates unforgettable memories for guests who appreciate service, character and charm.
