Immerse yourself in the scents and flavors of Marsala wine during a guided tour and tasting experience at the Florio Winery. Learn about the intricacies of the barrel cellars followed by a Marsala and Zibibbo wine tasting accompanied by light food pairings.
Upon arrival at the Florio Winery, start your tour with a visit to the wineries overlooking the sea. Just by walking among the barrel cellars, you’ll discover the history of Marsala wine and the winery that produces it.
The grapes used to produce Marsala grow along the coast of Western Sicily, and the wine’s goodness is fueled by the humid, brackish temperature. As you move away from the sea, the wine’s personality also varies.
Learn how the strategic location of the cellars is able to influence the essence of the wine. The cellars are precisely characterized by the presence of the tufa floor that allows the barrels to breathe in the smell of the sea.
Your guide will lead you to discover the archaeological site of Mothia on the island of San Pantaleo, in the Stagnone Nature Reserve in Marsala.
Here you will discover the various archaeological sites scattered around the island of Mothia (museum, habitation, necropolis, Tofet, Choton), and enjoy the natural beauty of the Stagnone Lagoon.
