From Marsala to the Aeolian islands: wines, history and blue sea
From the exotic Western wine areas of Marsala, where grapes ripen exposed to the warm scirocco wind blowing from Sahara to the lush and relaxing volcanic Aeolian Islands, an UNESCO Heritage site, to discover the beautiful DOC areas of the North coast of Sicily.
During this tour you will visit selected wineries and try their exceptional DOC Malvasia delle Lipari, DOC Marsala together with red and white wines made with autochthonous grape varieties such as pignatello, grillo or corinto nero. You will cook cuscus, traditional dish for special days in the province of Trapani, swim in the blue sea of Salina and discover the beautiful and bustling city of Palermo and its UNESCO world heritage listed city centre.
The friendly and relaxing hospitality of a “baglio”, a rural accommodation and excellent winery near Marsala and the elegant and sober charm of a boutique hotel and spa in Salina will add a complementary beauty to this tour.
