WINE AND VOLCANO TOUR - ITALY
Volcanic islands, cultural wonders and great wine in Sicily
Sicily was for millennia at the crossroads of cultures in the Mediterranean and was settled by Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Goths, Arabs, Normans and Spanish people, everyone leaving a mark in the art, architecture and cuisine of the island. In our Sicily tour we give you a taste of this region by visiting the 3 corners of this magnificent island. We visit ancient towns, beaches and mountains, admire volcanoes and the ocean, and indulge in the numerous wineries who make outstanding and often organic wines.
Almost everything! Start and end is at Palermo airport. Car, hotels, food and drinks are included in the price.
Excluded is the flight to and from Palermo, travel insurance and personal expenses for souvenirs etc.
If you want to buy some cases of your favourite wine at cellar prices, we can arrange the collection and consolidated shipment back to Hong Kong at very good rates.

WINES WE TRY:
Sicily has a lot of native grapes, uniqie to this island. They grow on volcanic slopes or dry hot climate and produce intensive aromas. There are the famous Malvasia, Nero d'Avola and Primitivo, but also local specialties like Grillo, Nerello, Perricone and Frappato. A whole world of wine in itself to discover!
