Marsala and the vineyards of Western Sicily: an enchanting wine break
Western Sicily is the geological and historical bridge between Europe and Africa, the melting pot of Sicilian and North African cultures. In the province of Trapani, with more acres planted to vine than any other province in Italy, some of the best Sicilian wines are produced using autochthonousgrape varieties such as pignatello, grillo or catarratto that ripen exposed to the warm breezes blowing from Sahara.
This exotic tour will take you to visit selected wineries and try their exceptional DOC Marsala (1st Italian DOC) and the native red and white wines of Western Sicily. You will walk among Greek temples, cook cuscus, traditional dish for special days in the province of Trapani and enjoy the friendly and relaxing hospitality of a “baglio”, a charming rural accommodation and excellent winery with an impressive collection of old Marsala “perpetuo” wines.
