Today you’ll drive to the coastal town of Marsala on the west coast of Sicily. Marsala is known for the wine of the same name and is the oldest and best-known wine, produced only in this region of Sicily. Stroll through the town, taking in its friendly atmosphere and photogenic cathedral. After which, drive back to your agriturismo where there is a swimming pool and a terrace for you to relax with your first taste of Marsala wine.
Visit wine cellar and wine tasting
You can relax some more this morning, as it’s not until this afternoon that you’ll head to a local vineyard, about ten minutes away from your agriturismo. Here we have scheduled a wine tasting for you and after visiting the large wine cellar, you will be served four wines from the region with a view over the vineyards to compliment them. Marsala is a fortified wine, similar to port or sherry, and different snacks are paired with each wine.
