Sicily has an average annual wine production ranking between the second and third position among the Italian regions. But what makes Sicily a very significant area for the wine production are the several varieties of native grapes and the dramatic climate and geological differences of the wine production areas which have resulted in twenty-two DOCs and one DOCG. Autochthonous grapes grow in the volcanic soil up in the snowy volcano Etna, in the lush Aeolian island of Salina or ripe in the southern coast of Sicily constantly exposed to the warm African breezes.
With the highest number of organic farms in the whole country, Sicily is perhaps the most eclectic and interesting farming region of Italy. The outstanding quality of our PDO olive oil, durum wheat, cheese, citrus, almonds, cappers, vegetables, herbs and the generous sea provide the fundamental ingredients for our century long excellent culinary traditions.
Paesaggio Sicilia Tour Operator is a team of people with a deep knowledge of Sicily and a great passion for its people, landscapes, culture, history, culinary traditions, agriculture and oenology.
The fil rouge of all our programmes is the personal contact with local people, culture and traditions. We organise wine and food programmes to visit the most traditional and creative wineries and to experience the daily life of rural enterprises.
We offer small group tours, tailor made programmes and private tours for those travellers who want to discover the most beautiful regions of Sicily, moving at nature’s pace in the respect of local culture and environment, travelling freely but discretely in those areas off the most beaten tourist tracks.
Paesaggio Sicilia Tour Operator will take part as provider at the IWINETC and workshop 2016 in Barcelona. For more info please contact us at [email protected] or visit www.paesaggiosicilia.com and www.facebook.com/PaesaggioSicilia
