Who has been to Sicilian wine country? Both my parents were born there so one of my dream wine adventures is to tour the island and must see wineries to visit .. any recommendations are welcomed!!!
I have been three times and love it there. I prefer the southeast part of the island and like to stay in the town of Noto. If you stay in Ragusa, it is very close to Vittoria. Catania is the best place to stay for visiting Etna (make sure to go to the fish market). Marsala is worth a visit to see de Bartoli but it's a bit of a hike from the east side of the island.
Master Kruth I am very familiar with planeta and plan to visit them and possibly Donnafugata, are there any other must see producers and or vineyard sites...
thanks in advance, merry Christmas
I love the wines from Ciro Biondi in Etna. I visited Donnafugata but in Pantelleria (also a great trip). I've heard good things about visiting Tasca d'Almerita, but I've never been personally.
Any insight on Franchetti? Had a bottle of Passopisciaro recently that was Great!
I'm really into Tenuta dell Terre Nere and Benati in the bottle, but I've never been to Sicily.
Benanti is great to visit!
