In the morning after breakfask, meet your driver and you'll leave Agrigento, for a visit to an outstanding winery and vineyards in the center of Sicly,, This is going to be a gloriosus day! Afterwards you'll head to the Aeolian Islands located off the coast of Sicily in the Tyrrhenian Sea!
For generations, the Tenuta Regaleali estate has been at the heart of the Tasca d'Almerita family's wine production. This green haven stretches over the Sicilian interior between Palermo and Caltanissetta, up to the Sclafani Bagni hills where the heat so typical of this Mediterranean region is less intense. On land rising 900 meters above sea level, the fruit matures slowly, and this allows for a greater range of grapes – many of which are indigenous. There's a good selection of French varieties as well, plus grapes from the Ionian and Aegean regions of Greece, from the Caucasus and Spain which together make Tenuta Regaleali a triumphant example of diversification, environmental protection and biodiversity – There are rare varieties, and varieties saved from the threat of extinction by the expert hands of Tasca d'Almerita' s vineyard workers and of researchers from universities in Palermo and Milan It's slow, painstaking work but at Tasca d'Almerita it seems that they're in no hurry.
You arrive at Regaleali and enter a beautiful courtyard, where you'll be met with the warmth and elegance of a noble Sicilian family, with the simplicity and genuineness you can find only in the country atmosphere.
You will immediately understand that the prominent character, is the land, beloved and respected. You will be guided in the visit by Corrado, who doesn't succeed at all to hide the love for the wine and for his job.
At the end of the tour, you'll leave with a beautiful feeling, that one can be a big wine company, can produce great wines, manage large numbers, have international awards, and yet remain faithful to its land, a land that as the owners love to say " we borrowed from our children."
After lunch and some free time, we'll continue to the wonderful town of Cefalù. From there, you'll catch the boat to Salina, the stunning island of natural beauty, where you will spend the next 2 nights. Salina is the second largest island that makes up this volcanic archipelago, an island filled with charm and hospitality. There are excellent restaurants, cafes and shops, surrounded by the the amazing turquoise sea.
