Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean situated between Tunisia to the south west and Calabria or the ‘toe of Italy’s boot’ to the northeast. Following periods of rule by numerous settlers over the last 10,000 years including the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans and Spanish, the rich tapestry of Sicily’s past remains interwoven into the diversity of the landscape, architecture, wines and cuisine today. We invite you to book a wine tour in Sicily and discover this most fascinating of islands for yourself.
While in Sicily why not live like a local? Embrace the morning coffee ritual before starting your day and enjoy a typical breakfast of brioche with granita or gelato. Booking a wine tour in Sicily will allow you to plunge yourself into the history of the island with plenty of time to spend sightseeing, soaking up the local culture, relaxing by the sparkling sea and enjoying the vibrant food scene. We offer a wide range of wine tours which will allow you to discover the excellent and diverse selection of wines being produced across the island.
Like its wine, the gastronomy of Sicily also draws visitors to the Island. Bursting with flavour, Sicily’s cuisine is born of the influence of its numerous colonising civilizations over the centuries – as diverse as it is delicious! Arab, Turkish and Greek cuisine all feature heavily, and the abundance of produce grown on the island or found in the surrounding seas including sardines, swordfish, citrus fruits, grains, olives, capers, nuts and of course, grapes, serves to deliver beautifully fresh and exciting dishes.
Thanks to its enviable location Sicily enjoys a desirable Mediterranean climate with long hot dry summers and short, milder winters making it the ideal place for a wine tour outside the busy and hot summer months of July or August. With miles of beautiful beaches, towns boasting Baroque architecture, ancient monuments and not forgetting Europe’s most active volcano, Sicily is a fantastic year-round destination for everyone to enjoy.
