Full description
Don’t miss out on this wonderful tasting tour of the best typical Sicilian wines and cheeses inside a charming 16th century private home, just a few steps from the famous Arab market Vucciria. This 2-hour tour is ideal for those who do not have enough time to travel to one of the wineries, many of them far from the city of Palermo.

Inside a peaceful and relaxing home environment you can enjoy tasting original Sicilian wines, including Frappato, Nero d'Avola, Catarratto, Grillo, Anzonica (Insolia), and Grecanico. All wines will be happily combined with the best Sicilian cheeses, including Primo Sale, Caciocavallo fresco, Ricotta infornata, Canestrato, Vastedda del Belice, and Tuma persa.
