Travel on this fantastic tour of a wine tasting experience complete with the genuine flavours of the past, contact with nature and good, Sicilian food. Here's the program:
Pick up at hotel by your English speaking driver. You will be driven to Etna North in Castiglione di Sicilia to visit the famous Frank Cornelissen Winery. Frank Cornelissen used to ferment his grapes in amphora but now prefers to use small fermenting bins and then transfer the wine to amphora for aging. Visit and wine tasting. Enjoy a pic-nic lunch with wine tasting in the vineyards of Tenute di Fessina, a boutique winery that produces a limited amount of wines, due to the small size of their vineyards, which have been trained to grow into what is known as the gobelet method since the past century: 7 hectares in Rovittello, planted mostly with Nerello Mascalese; 2,5 hectares between Milo and Santa Maria di LicodĂ¬a, growing at 1000 m. above sea level, planted with Carricante grapes, produced with the help of our agronomist and chief winemaker; 1,5 hectares in Val di Noto, which give 100% Nero dâ€™Avola wine.
Then you move to Tenuta delle Terre Nere , fruit of over 30 years of passion and work in the world of fine wine. At the end of the tour back to the hotel
