Exclusive Wine tasting with Lunch and visit of Orange Plantation

For a day out in the countryside of Catania, between orange plantations, orchards, farm to table food and wine tasting, we offer free service of pick-up, at around 10.30 am, from hotels in Catania and nearby area.

This excursion will take place in the countryside of Catania. Around orchards, olive groves, orange plantations, you will discover how it’s important for Sicilian people agriculture and farm to table.

Arriving at the farm, the first step is the visit of orange plantation. Walking inside the orange plantation, skilled staff will describe the different kinds of citrus and production techniques, as well as various treatments from irrigation to collection. Possibility to pick-up fruits from a citrus grove.

In addition, after this relaxing visit, will start the visit of the orchards, undoubtedly the best in the area.Strolling inside the park full of typical Mediterranean plants, out in the open air, it’s impossible to save the stress of the city!

Then, it will be time for the wine! You will visit the palmento (millstone), with a sommelier, that is located inside the patriarchal villa of the farm. This palmento is one of the oldest in this area, and still perfectly preserved.

Learn the story behind the production of each bottle of wine, from the time of the pruning, to the vendemmia or harvest, through to the fermentation and aging. Discover  the tradition of wine production pursued by the family who have owned this farm for generations

Finally, time of wine tasting! Tasting of 4 typical Sicilian wines. All the wines will be accompanied by a Sicilian lunch made by traditionally dishes. You will eat products in olive oil (black olives, green olives, dried tomatoes, little mushrooms), salami, Sicilian cheese, Sicilian pestos, marmalades, bread, and Sausages made with wine.

During the wine tasting tasting and lunch we may discuss how to taste wines or how to read the label – or any questions that you may have… Nothing’s rushed, so you’ll have the time to relax and enjoy.
