WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
This private day-trip with local tour guide will give our guest the opportunity to live for one day with the farmers and the wine makers, discovering some of the most genuine food gem of our land and enjoying an authentic experience in the beauty countryside of south-east coast.
Starting from Syracuse, a sightseeing drive will lead you along the ocean side, the hills and the vineyards on our confortable minivan, towards the Noto valley, for approximately one hour. Then, you’ll be welcomed by the Farmer and his family in their ancient Sicilian farm, with a first tasting of some of their delicious products in a very relaxing and friendly atmosphere.
A walk around the farm, surrounded by the scent of almond and lemon trees, will give you the opportunity to see the flock of sheep, where every day they get the milk, and to admire the elegance of the almond trees, where the authentic and prizes winner Mandorla di Noto comes from. During the walk you will also learn how to work the almonds to create the famous Sicilian almond milk.
After the walk, The Farmer will offer you a real demonstration of how to work diligently with sheep’s milk to create the delicious Ricotta cheese, fresh mozzarella and other typical Sicilian cheeses, with the warm breeze rolling in from the Mediterranean Sea into their rustic kitchen. You will definitely enjoy the best cheese-making demonstrations in Sicily. From the first drop of milk to the delicious final products.
All these products will be the base for the typical Sicilian lunch, where the friendly feeling of a small and intimate group of food lovers will make the experience unique.
