Sicily Food & Wine Tours™

Marsala Wine Tour & Tasting with Olive Oil Tasting ~ 1 Day

Join us on Sicily’s wine road for a visit to a noble wine maker in the heart of Marsala for a full-day tour!  Experience, explore, sip and swirl the famous Marsala wines!

Meet your driver and then once in Marsala, your English-speaking guide will lead you on a visit of the property set amongst citrus and olive trees.  You will feel like you’re stepping back in time to a wine maker of long ago.  Visit the aging cellars, the underground barrique room and the Sala delle Botti, hall of barrels.

Following the tour, enjoy the Marsala wine tastings.  You’ll discover the technical aspects of the wine, and the wine production. You will taste five wines paired with Sicilian antipasti such as tomato, basil and almond pesto bruschetta, potato and octopus salad, fish and vegetable couscous, local pork and spinach roulade, and chocolate and orange cake.  Also included in the tour is an extra virgin olive oil tour and tasting.

While at the cantina, learn about Signor Giacomo’s organic approach to grape growing and winemaking – a method that has been used since 1851. He and his family are very active in their wine production and are passionate about preserving the old world traditions. Their recipe for success is merging modern technologies with old world artisan know-how for award-winning wine. Their limited edition collection includes sparkling brut, white, rosé, red and grappa.

Following the tour, visit Marsala and discover the town on your own.
