11 Day Food and Wine Package 9-19 October, 2018 through Sicily, Italy limited to 12 people. Tour is led by the Master of Wine in search of sensory indulgence in the wine and food of this amazing island off the boot of Italy. Get ready to discover Sicilian wine and savour the gastronomic delights on this sensational wine and food journey.
Discover Taormina, Modica and Trapani, the high altitude Etnean slopes, visit Michelin-starred restaurants, sample the traditional reds of the south, the reincarnated whites around Trapani, modernised varieties in the south-west and have the chance to flirt with some natural and amphora wines.
An eleven day event for sophisticated travellers who rarely take hosted tours or those seeking first time experiences in Europe.
What sets this Sicily Wine and Food Tour apart is that you become selected guests who enjoy introduction-only exclusive visits to wineries, castles, villas, cellars and ancient residences, not generally open to the public.
Each day you can look forward to a themed lunch or dinner to complement your winery visits. You can expect the very best history-influenced flavours of this grand island with region-specific dishes, traditional cooking styles, ingredients in season and wine varietals at each dining experience.
We stay in luxurious old-world hotels with sweeping views of the sea, all centrally located in the cities we visit and offer you quality experiences within short walking distance of your hotels.
We want you to have time to explore and discover the history, architecture and traditions of Sicily including Greek temples, baroque churches and medieval fortresses when winery and restaurant visits are not programmed.
Our guests receive the best personalised attention, tasting expertise and menu explanations as numbers are limited to 12 people.
