Enogastronomic tour for wine and food lovers.
Today our driver takes you in the morning from your place
to visit two of the region’s top rated wineries as Murgo and Barone di Villagrande in an uforgettable Enogastronomic tour.
The world famous cuisine of Sicily is a reflection of the island’s bounty and biodiversity,
but while Sicilian ingredients have long been a part of the American culinary experience, the wines paired with these meals rarely came from Sicily.
Fortunately for wine lovers, that is changing.
Today, the Sicilia DOC is reviving the island’s vinous heritage so that both Sicily’s own pantheon of culinary delights as well as fine cuisines from around the world,
can benefit from the elegance and harmony Sicilian wines bring to the table.
Now more than ever, Sicilian wine producers are focusing on the opportunities provided by the Mediterranean landscape.
The island’s climatic conditions are perfect for producing healthy grapes and extraordinary wines with distinctive flavors at incredible value.
For those who have already enjoyed Sicily’s wines,
either with the island’s traditional foods or their own favorite international dishes,
one thing remains clear: Incredible food and amazing wines do not have to be expensive.
As wine lovers discover the best-known Sicilian grapes—Grillo, Catarratto, Nero d’Avola, Frappato and others—they find that the sun-kissed island is capable of producing a range of intriguing flavors, but ultimately it is Sicily’s authenticity that wins their heart.
