Taste the best of Palermo's local specialties


Our wine tasting is not based just on wines, but also on tasting of different Sicilian cheeses and local food, such as Bread of Tumminia or Monreale, green olives Nocellara del Belice, some Caponata and our fantastic Cassata, the typical Sicilian ricotta cake.
So if you think you will only drink, it's not like this!

The local specialties are home made by our cook, so it is for you also the chance to taste more food.
The tasting is about 6 bottles of Sicilian wines (3 white and 3 red of single local grapes), and not glasses but full bottles!
We suggest for each single wine a different type among 6 Sicilian cheeses.

After the tasting of wines, you will taste a Sicilian dessert wine and will enjoy our Cassata cake that will leave a sweet memory in your mind.

Itinerary

We meet in a famous and beautiful square: Piazza San Domenico, and walk for about 5 minutes to go reach our location, a charming home inside a building of XVII century.
Here you will taste 6 of the most famous Sicilian wines, and cheeses and other local specialties.
The tasting is lead by a very professional and skilled experienced person. After the tasting you will have a note about the wines and the cheeses you have tasted, for your memory and utility. The tasting is about full bottles and not only a glass, so you can drink as you want.
