Our wonderful friends Rosairo and Christiane, who reside in Lucca, have introduced us over the years to many wonderful wines, olive oils and the cuisine from Rosario’s home, Sicily.
They say all good journeys start with a glass of wine and a meal and such is the case with the journey we have created for you to discover Sicily.

Here is what we have planned…

The family who will host us for our journey into the viticulture of Sicily have links that go back eight generations.

Tasca d’Almerita is made up of five estates, with four located in different regions on the Island of Sicily and the fifth being in Salina on the Aeolian Islands.

Our journey will start in Taormina, which will provide us access to the Tenuta Tascante estate, situated on the slopes of Mt Etna. From there we journey down the eastern coast to the seaside town of Syracuse.

We then venture north-west to the  Estate of Tenuta Regaleali where we will stay on the estate.

Villa Tasca which is located on the estate  dates back to the 15th century. Located in Palermo’s historic centre, it’s one of the most stunning residences in Sicily.
Surrounded by a variety of flora and fauna, it was first a hunting lodge and then transformed into a vacation home – a unique and enchanting place perfectly positioned for us to discover the area.

Local cuisine experiences are being planned along with a visit to the Estate of Sallier de la Tour which will be combined with an afternoon and evening in Palermo where you get to taste the renowned street cuisine of this Italian City.

We will then journey out to the Aelion Islands where we will enjoy time at Tasca Estate and Resort Capofaro Malvasia.

At the conclusion of your Sicilian vacation you have the opportunity to join us at Villa Controni, giving you the chance to discover the wine, olive oils and cuisine of this area while we enjoy the start of the famous Lucca Summer Festival.
