Baroque wine and olive oil tour
Your English-speaking driver will greet you at your hotel and your itinerary will start with a scenic drive to an acclaimed winery in the Cerasuolo DOCG area (territory of Ragusa).
We have selected two experiences that encapsulate the true character of this area and, once arrived at the winery, we will be introduced to the indigenous grape varietals and traditional farming system.
The private tour takes approximately 1.5 hours, taking you behind the scenes to learn about the wine-making process. The wine estate tour will be followed by a structured private tasting that includes expert commentary upn high-quality and award winning wines, made from 100% autochthonous grape varietals.
During this wonderful journey, you'll enjoy a visit to a farm where an extraordinary olive oil is produced. Here we will taste the exquisite, award-winning D.O.P Iblean olive oil accompanied by homemade bread and a selection of local cheeses and cured meats.
With the help of the producer, we will learn when an oil is considered extra virgin. By simply comparing different qualities we'll be able to determine which olive oils meet the criteria to carry the "extra virgin" designation and those that have negative tastes that professionals refer to as defects.
Since you are near beautiful towns rich in Baroque architecture, your chauffeur will be happy to stop in one of them to give you the chance to relax before driving you back to your city accommodation where your tour will conclude in the late afternoon.
