Here is what you will live

With this tour you'll go back in time  discovering the inner soul of the food & wine sicilian heritage!

Pick up at hotel in Agrigento area by your English speaking driver. Drive to Menfi where you will visit the Barbera Winery with Marilena Barbera. Making wine is her life choice. When Seh got back to Sicily after years spent somewhere else, She found the vineyards and her father’s dream. And she made it, started to live here, to feel the energy of this beautiful though difficult land, trying to understand its essence and to capture its generous personality.  She makes her wines praticticing organic farming and natural winemaking, while paying utmost respect to Menfi's terroir. 
No herbicides or synthetic fertilisers are ever allowed in the vineyard, nor any other systemic farm chemicals that may alter the environment's health and its rich biodiversity.
At the winery, She chose to work only with spontaneous fermentations and to adopt non invasive winemaking practices, in order to respect the unique personality of Sicilian native grape varieties and the beautiful land to which they belong.

You will meet her, spend time with this amazing young lady and taste her great wines!

Lunch will then be served at De Gregorio Winery.   An old country village, borns around a 13th century  watchtower; a 16th century  cellar where with ancient techniques they used to produce a delicate and intense wine; a small mill created to cater to the personal needs and finally, at the end of the 17thcentury, the birth of a small primary school, with  a few classes, where  young teacher arrived on the backs of horses. This was the reality of  Ragana village (the word comes from the Arabic language “ Ras-hana”,  which means friendship ground) where, taking the spirit of ancient traditions, Ugo Testoni Wine, produced from these lands and vinified in this winery, was known and appreciated throughout the province and beyond.  His daughter Maruzza  and her husband  Ascanio, togheter  with their children, have renovated the old cellar, trying to renew a mythical memory, in the harmonious integration of the past experiences and new wine innovation.

Then enjoy a wine tour with the oenologist in the countryside among the rows, with the opportunity to help our peasantry while harvest or prune a vineyard. Tasting from the barrels the Chardonnay that slowly mature before it is bottled or the Nero d’Avola just decanted from the large barrels.
Climb to the top of the tower like ancient guardians, to look over the territory of Sciacca, Kronio mountain, the beach and the mythical Selinunte, and from there looking over the vineyards and  olive groves. Visit the ancient ‘700 wineries, today became a tasting hall, waiting for the chef to prepare traditional Sicilian dishes to be matched with the wines. Afternoon will be at leisure to enjoy some shopping in Sciacca.
