Etna bike and wine

 

 

Join the wine bike tour. The cuisine in Sicily is different from the rest of the Italy,in addition to its great wines, dinner in Sicily usually consists of vegetables (tomatoes, eggplants, artichokes), plenty of seafood, and yes, lots of pasta and olive oil. Its lemons, oranges, figs, almonds and apricots are among the best in the world. Castiglione di Sicilia is resting on a hill on the north side of Etna, in the middle of the valley that the river Alcantara digs between Randazzo and  Taormina. To see it from afar, it is the archetype of the typical hilltop village, with houses perched along the slope.

During our tour we will visit wine cooperatives with wine tasting and local food tasting.

Wine is one of the greatest signs of civilization in the world.

(Ernest Hemingway)

"The Etna Wine Route is a path that includes vineyards, cellars and farms, wine bars, museums of the vine and wine. It starts from Santa Venerina and, crossing Giarre, you get to Riposto, you continue on the seafront up to Fiumefreddo di Sicilia, from where the climb begins which winds through the hairpin bends and terraces that climb towards the volcano through Piedimonte Etneo, Linguaglossa and Fornazzo.

This itinerary will make you discover all the characteristic elements of the Acate Valley: colors and scents of Sicily, the white of the mule tracks that connect all the farmhouses of the valleys, the green of the vineyards

Acate Valley

We live in a land rich in history, where wine enjoys longstanding traditions. We are in a faraway place, rife with beauty and mystery.
