What to expect

Stroll through the citrus groves on the slopes of Mount Etna where, in spring, you can smell the sweet scent of orange blossom, and in winter you will feel as if you are in the midst of many Christmas trees with the hanging blood oranges providing a colourful backdrop.

You will then visit the almond orchard and admire the olive groves with centuries-old trees that give us our prized extra virgin olive oil. In the masseria, built in the mid-1800s, you will discover a lava stone palmento that recalls ancient winemaking traditions. A tasting of our extra virgin olive oil and samples of local cheeses complete the tour.

Giuseppe – maga a tulajdonos – fogadott a farmon. Az eső ellenére végigvezetett és bemutatta a legújabb ültetvényeket. Elmesélte a hely történetét, majd egy igazán gazdag és nagyvonalú kóstolón vehettünk részt. Többek között, nagyon finom Pane cunzato-t készített számunkra. Érdekesen mesélt Sziciliáról, igazán otthon éreztük magunkat nála. Ez volt a legjobb vérnarancs, amit eddig kóstoltunk. Giuseppe igazán eredeti, lelkes és figyelmes idegenvezető.
