Sicily's Wine Regions: Etna, Syracuse & Erice

Discover the Diversity of Sicilian Wine & Relax Amongst Sublime Natural Vistas on a Customised Wine Tour

While Sicily has been at the heart of the Mediterranean viniculture for many years, it has only been in recent times that wine experts have started highlighting the island as an up-and-coming wine region thanks to the significant changes in Sicilian wines in recent years from sweet Muscats to high-quality dry wines.

So why is Sicily becoming so popular for its wines? Well, Sicily is blessed with consistent sunshine teamed with moderate rainfall, which provide the perfect growing conditions for the best wine grapes. In addition, thanks to the warm, dry climate and refreshing coastal breezes, Sicilian vines rarely suffer from mildew and rot, meaning that chemical sprays are rarely necessary and many Sicilan wines are naturally organic.

A tour of Sicily's wine regions is not just a treat for the tastebuds, but also gives you the opportunity to take in stunning natural scenery defined by the island's volcanic terrain. As a part of our customised Sicily wine regions tour, we take you to the fertile vineyards of Mount Etna, where you can sample Etna DOC wine, which is defined by the mineral-rich soil that can only be found on the hills of this famous stratovolcano. Next, we take you south to the sloping landscape of Syracuse, where you can take in idyllic sea views whilst sampling the local Moscato di Siracuse wine, which is made exclusively with the divine Moscato Bianco grapes. Finally, this customised Sicily wine regions tour takes you to Erice on the west of the island, where you can truly appreciate the diversity of Sicilian wine with a sampling of the classic Erice Passito made with Zibibbo grapes or perhaps enjoy some bubbles with a sweet Erice Spumante.
