OUR MISSION is to provide authentic food experiences making travellers catch the uniqueness of each single regional cuisine. ALL STREATY GUIDES ARE ITALIAN. We believe that only Italians can bring their own culture into life! We don’t you to simply know about a city. We want you to feel it. WHY CHOOSE US? Let’s go straight to the point: Streaty guides play the role of local friends, taking travellers to their favorite old inns and street food stalls. We offer real food in real places away from tourist traps. Food vendors are carefully selected based on the quality and the authenticity of their recipes. Streaty guides enrich the experience by giving travellers historical hints and telling facts untold by guidebooks. Our small group tours allow travellers to have enjoyable experiences ensuring them a constant interaction with their guides and the vendors. It is not in our interest to gather big groups to make more money! We want to promote a SUSTAINABLE FORM OF TOURISM based on the respect of both locals’ daily life and travellers’ hunger of discovery. You are not a ka-ching number to us, you are a new friend

Planeta Feudo di Mezzo – Sciaranuova

In 2008 after searching for a long time for the best land for our vines, we stopped on the north side of Etna, among the lava flows and the woods which surround Passopisciaro. Here we planted our Nerello and Carricante vines and in 2012 the winery was also established. The estate spreads both south and north of the village. To the north, in the middle of the beautiful Sciaranuova vineyard, at more than 800 metres above sea level, we invested in the careful restoration of old buildings, which today represent the centre of our hospitality. To the south, near the Feudo di Mezzo vineyard, we built the Feudo di Mezzo winery right in the centre of a fifteenth century lava flow. Nearby we planted Torreguarino, Pietramarina and Montelaguardia vines, ideal for our white wines. At Sciaranuova we transformed part of the old terraces into a Theatre in the Vineyard, where every summer the Sciaranuova Festival is held, one of the cultural activities that we have inspired and produced. Six of our wines are produced on Etna, other than the Brut Metodo Classico. Only two of them fall within the Etna DOC because the other two – the Eruzione 1614 – come from the Sciaranuova vineyard, which lies outside the area of denomination, at 850 metres above sea level. These two are our Etna crus, for which we chose a very evocative name, recalling the legendary eruption of 1614, the longest ever recorded, lasting more than ten years, and which halted right on the border of these vineyards, forming their shape.

Planeta Ulmo

Our story and our journey began at Ulmo. In the middle of the 1980’s we planted our first vines around the 16th century farmhouse which the family has always owned; a beautiful place full of memories which we wanted to provide with a new future. We built our first winery in 1995 on the banks of the Lake Arancio and its nearby woods, in really delightful countryside. We also established the Iter Vitis museum, surrounded by a ‘Collection meadow’ of different Sicilian and Georgian vines, inspired by the idea of enhancing the rich Sicilian winemaking tradition. The nature footpath, La Segreta, leaves from the winery and leads to exploration of three more different paths which border the vineyards, discovering untouched corners and unexpected views. Hidden within the Menfi hills and with 160 hectares of vineyard, the Dispensa estate is the beating heart of all our activities. The family houses are within the Baglio, while around them lie our production, administrative and planning centres. The larger part of the company’s production takes place here, and we have built two wineries; the large and the small. The Infernotto, inside the small winery, is our family caveau, with a collection of our favourite labels from all over the world and all the Planeta vintages. These are some of the wines which have made history for our company and carry the name of our family throughout the world: from Chardonnay, symbol of our production and of the winemaking renaissance in Sicily, to Cometa, the great white wine of south Italy and result of our experiments with Fianco; from Alastro which best expresses the characteristics of an ancient indigenous grape like Grecanico, to La Segreta, faithful companion for everyday drinking; passing through the single variety Merlot and Syrah vineyards, to Menfi among the Dispensa and Ulmo vineyards.

Planeta Buonivini Noto

We arrived at Noto in 1998, establishing our estate in the district which, not by coincidence, has always been known as ‘Buonivini’. Here we rebuilt the Case Sparse, small rural houses where today you can stay in an authentic and ideal atmosphere, made comfortable by furnishings produced from recycled materials. After visiting the ‘Invisible Winery’ and a wine tasting, lunch is available in the rooms of the old wine press or with a picnic in the shade of carob trees enjoying the typical products of the territory. The heart of hospitality at Buonivini is the old grape press in the centre of the vineyard, restored and recovered from original architecture and dating from the early 1900’s, where the tanks for grape pressing and fermentation of the must are still visible. We will expect you here after a visit to the vineyards and to the winery for a guided tasting of our wines, an aperitif, lunch and purchases in the wine shop. The large vineyard of Buonivini is punctuated by Case Sparse, small rural houses which were scattered among the small properties which once divided the estate. They have been renovated, painted with the typical red of old country farm houses and furnished with the creations of the artist Costanza Algranti, made entirely from recycled materials found locally.
