Highlights

  • Savor 3 wines and their nuanced notes in an enchanted historic garden
  • Learn about renowned grape varieties in the Sicilian city of Syracuse
  • Visit the vineyards where Moscato di Siracusa and Nero d'Avola are born
  • Join a guided tour of the historical buildings where these wines are made

Description

Visit a historic winery in Syracuse that has recovered the lost taste of Moscato di Siracusa and renewed the more consolidated one of Nero d'Avola. Take part in a unique sensory experience in the fairytale setting of a castle’s garden with a tasting of 3 wines. Tour a vineyard with grapes growing in heterogeneous soils. Learn about the limestone component which gives delicacy to the Moscato grapes, and the volcanic component which strengthens the body of the reds and Nero d'Avola. Follow your guide to the historic buildings of the winery, including the Baglio Federiciano, the Baglio dei Ricordi (historical Sicilian buildings where wine is made), the garden, and the ancient 18th-century millstone. See where fine wines are born in an oasis of greenery, which creeps into the fertile Syracusan plain of Epipoli and breathes the salty air of the nearby Mediterranean coast. Finally, try prestigious labels in the tasting room, taking part in a century-long family tradition.
