Alfie takes his visators "Friends" for wine tasting in various wineries (choosing out of more than 80 wineries) all over Sicily from sea level up to an altitude of 900 mts (3000 ft) . One of Alfies Sicilian rules is you would never start drinking wine on its own and nver taste wines if not before filling your palate with rich flavours of cheese or various savoury snacks or meats....Sicilian wines have been awarded with prizes worldwide in the last ten years and now people have a culture of Sicilian Grapes..for example ..Red , Nero D'Avola or Etna's Nerello Maschelese..White.. Grillo, Insolia and Cataratto. Then all types of grapes discovered in other countries are also grown in Sicily ..Chardonnay, Voigner, Merlot, San Giovese which find fertile volcanic soils and suitable climate.
