Are you a wine lover? You don't have a lot of time? This quick and delicious wine and food tasting in Catania, Sicily, is perfect for you!
In a paceful green area, close to the city center of Catania, far from smog and touristic areas, you will have the opportunity to taste 3 Etna wines and typical Sicilian food.
The tour starts with the visit of the palmento (millstone), that is located inside a patriarchal villa of the farm or, during the spring or summer time, inside the park full of typical Mediterranean plants, out in the open air.
This palmento is one of the oldest in this area, and still perfectly preserved.
With a sommelier, the trip will continue inside the palmento, to learn about the tradition of wine production pursued by the family who have owned this farm for generations.
Learn the story behind the production of each bottle of wine, from the time of the pruning, to the vendemmia or harvest, through to the fermentation and aging.
Finally, you will be tasting 3 typical Sicilian wines paired with Sicilian food such as products in olive oil (black olives, green olives, dried tomatoes, little mushrooms), salami of Brolo, two types of cheese, Sicilian patè, marmalade (orange and tangerine), and cunzato bread (seasoned bread Sicilian style).
During the tastings you may discuss how to taste wines or how to read the label – or any questions that you may have. Nothing’s rushed, so you’ll have the time to relax and enjoy.
