summary-image

This is an intensive and private, six day wine-focussed itinerary which visits small family estates and bigger cellars alike and is escorted by a wine expert.

Discover the world of Sicilian wines from East to West coast, staying in charming four star boutique accommodation, featuring visits and tasting to at least nine wineries, as well as most meals.

Throughout the different territories and terroir, there are plenty of indigenous grapes (as well as the usual suspects) that make excellent wines, and are sure to impress.

It's a journey that showcases the excellence of Sicilian wines without forgetting to discover the real Sicily, which is rich in art, culture, tradition, good food and natural beauty.
