Agricultural Sicily: Natural Food and Wine Excursions
A huge variety of crops, fruits and food productions, the diversity of soils and climates and the largest number of organic farms in the whole country make Sicilian farming one of the most eclectic and interesting of Italy. Our rural landscape, beautifully shaped by the agriculture, is one of the principle actors of the Sicilian economy, history and society.
This is why visiting Sicilian farms and discovering the history of Sicilian agriculture is perhaps the best way to understand the culture of the island and appreciate the beauty of its territory.
This itinerary offers the possibility to visit selected innovative and historical family run productions and try excellent DOC (Controlled Designation of Origin) wines and PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) products, largely organically grown, while hosted in beautiful orchards, wineries and old farms in the magnificent set of Etna and the UNESCO world heritage sites of the Noto valley.
We have imagined this programme for those travellers who are interested in the beauty of monuments and landscapes but want to experience, at the same time, the most authentic aspects of a territory. You will be able to take your time to enjoy every meeting, every new experience and every cultural exchange away from the “normal tourist tracks”.
You will meet young and elderly people, experienced “family” cooks, shepherds and famers, wine and olive oil makers and all of them will be keen to share with you their history and their experience.
A responsible way to visit Sicily by getting in contact, talking, cooking, walking and eating with some of the people who are contributing to the renaissance of the Sicilian rural world.
The black of the lava, the lush green of the trees, the yellow and orange of the citrus, the blue of the sea and the white limestone of the UNESCO world heritage baroque cities will constantly remind you that the world is a place where cultural and biological diversity are a treasure to be protected and enhanced.
