Available days: upon availability Discover the unique flavors of wine and olive oil in the rugged countryside of the southeastern corner of Sicily!Meet your English-speaking driver at your hotel and start your day with a scenic drive to an acclaimed winery in the Cerasuolo DOCG area, located in the territory of Ragusa. Explore an authentic sicilian Baglio (walled country estate) to learn about the indigenous grape varietals and traditional farming system and go behind the scenes to acquire a knowledge of the wine-making process. Enjoy a private tasting that includes expert commentary on high-quality and award winning wines, made from 100% autochthonous grape varietals: Nero d'Avola, Frappato and Grillo. During this wonderful journey, you'll enjoy a visit to a farm where an extraordinary olive oil is produced: here you 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, learn when an oil is considered extra virgin. By simply comparing different qualities you'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, have a stop in Modica, the chocolate city. Located in the Val di Noto, Modica is listed among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Have a stroll in the center, admire the beautiful baroque facade of the San Pietro church and have a tasting of the famous chocolate product only here.
