    What to Expect
    Free service of pick-up, at around 10.30 am, from hotels in Catania and nearby area.

    Arriving at the farm, walking inside the orange plantation, skilled staff will describe the different kinds of citrus and production techniques, as well as various treatments from irrigation to collection. Possibility to pick-up fruits from a citrus grove. After this relaxing visit, will start the visit of the palmento, with a sommelier. 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, time of wine tasting! Tasting of 4 typical Sicilian wines. All the wines will be accompanied by a tipical lunch made by traditionally dishes. You will eat products in olive oil (black olives, green olives, dried tomatoes, little mushrooms), salami, Sicilian cheese, Sicilian pestos, marmalades, bread, and Sausages made with wine.

    During the tastings we 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.
