Unforgettable luxury wine tours in Sicily, Treasure of the Mediterranean

Sicily is a captivating Italian island and a destination that draws you back again and again. Quintessentially Mediterranean, Sicily is a mix of many civilizations and a crossroads of trade and commerce since ancient times. The Ancient Greeks founded many of Sicily’s most famous towns, including Syracuse, Catania, Taormina, Giardini Naxos, and Messina. Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, the Spanish, and the French followed. It is precisely this mix of cultures that make Sicily so unique and appealing. The island’s architecture is rich and varied, and the food is to die for! Sicily is a lot larger than many visitors expect, and there is so much to see and do, from wine tasting to visiting ancient Greek ruins to sailing out to volcanic islands. There are over 1400 kilometers of coastline in Sicily! We have designed this itinerary to show you the “best of the Island,” including the spectacular Aeolian Islands.

This premium, private wine tour in Sicily includes both the western and the eastern part of the island and offers a variety of food, wine, and cultural experiences. Visit the one and only Palermo, chic Taormina, Greek Syracuse, trapped-in-time Agrigento, and baroque Ragusa. Enjoy personalized, VIP wine tours and tastings in Marsala, Etna, Vittoria, Castelbuono, and other smaller wine regions. Pamper yourself with spa time at exquisite resorts. Your adventure begins in Palermo, and for the next few nights will be staying at the historic Villa Igea, where you might run into visiting celebrities. Just over a mile outside of Palermo’s historic center, this is a relaxing place to stay while in the Capital. Highlights include the seaside town of Cefalù, the Greek Temples of Agrigento and Segesta, ceramics of Caltagirone, and mosaics of Villa del Casale.

You will also visit Caltagirone, the city of ceramics, and medieval Erice, perched on Mount Erice overlooking Trapani. Its Norman castle and citadel rest on rugged mountains, and Erice called “city in the clouds.” You will experience wonders of nature, like Mount Etna and Scala dei Turchi. Wine tasting at top Sicilian cellars is in store for you on this tour, and you will visit leading estates like Abbazia di Sant’Anastasia, Marco de Bartoli, Gulfi, Tenuta Delle Terre Nere, Biondi, Passopisciaro, COS, and Armosa. Marvel at the sea salt mounds near Trapani and indulge in sea salt spa treatments, including a private salt bath.
Finally, it wouldn’t be a Cellar Tours vacation without some unforgettable gourmet experiences and dining, and you will taste an array of traditional local dishes. Including Crespelle di Ricotta e Acciughe (sinfully delicious deep-fried ricotta and anchovies); Caponata (a sumptuous eggplant/aubergine antipasto); Pasta Alla Norma (pasta with a savory eggplant, ricotta, and basil sauce); one million variations of Pesce Spada (swordfish) and (believe it or not), seafood couscous, particularly in Trapani area, a reminder of Sicily’s Arabic past. Sicily also has a sweet tooth and relishing freshly made Cassata is one of those “must-do” experiences in life. This tour combines unique sightseeing, luxury, and plenty of wining and dining!
