Wine & Cheese tasting tour is for those who want to approach the world of regional cuisine and at the same time visiting some of the most beautiful monumental areas of the old town. The tasting is conducted by me, it includes a brief guided walk of about 30 minutes to admire one of the most interesting monumental areas of the city (about 1 mile). Then, we reach a renowned wine cellar in an refined environment, where we start the joint tasting, served with elegant cutlery and glasses, of five types of excellent quality Sicilian cheeses, from the freshest to the most aged, almond cookies and six important wines representative of the main local varieties, such as Nero d'Avola and Catarratto, and a dessert wine. It is a selection of the most meaningful local varieties and cheeses made by me to have a small wine and food trip of Sicily from our table. The Sicilian wine, of secular tradition, has won over in recent decades the markets all over the world and the dairy Sicilian tradition is one of the oldest and most appreciated in Italy.
