Starting from Syracuse, a sightseeing drive will lead you along the ocean side, the hills and the vineyards towards the Noto valley, for approximately one hour. Then, you’ll be welcomed in the farm with a first tasting of some of their delicious products in a very relaxing and friendly atmosphere.

Following, the real demonstration of how to work diligently with sheep’s milk to create the delicious Ricotta cheese, fresh mozzarella and other typical Sicilian cheeses. You will definitely enjoy the best cheese-making demonstration in Sicily. From the first drop of milk to the delicious final products. All these products will be the base for the typical Sicilian lunch, where the friendly feeling of a small and intimate group of food lovers will make the experience unique.

Approximately at 3pm, our English speaking driver will take you through the breathtaking countryside, to discover this wonderful area of Sicily. Here you can find a landscape typical of Tuscany, with hills, olive groves and the Nero d’Avola vineyards, mixed together with the Californian canyons and seaside views. A unique experience to enjoy driving along scenic and silent country roads for approximately 45 minutes, and having fantastic photo opportunities.

The excursion continues with a two hours visit of one vineyard and their cellars and the wine tasting, followed by traditional food tasting – oil, cheese, sun dried tomatoes – where you will learn the different characteristics of our local wines, discovering the history and the taste of some Sicilian wines that are beginning to be sought after all over the world.
