Sicily has more vineyards than any other Italian regions. Competing for first place as the largest wine producer. It’s the perfect place to breathe the tranquility of the real rural Sicily of centuries past. The island is renowned for the many outstanding wines. Some of them produced in this area (south of Palermo). Which is famous for a great wine and olive oil production. But also for the soft hilly landscape and pleasant sandy beaches.
Selinunte is one of the most evocative places in Sicily. Also one of the most impressive of all Greek sites. Never having been built over in modern times. In the 5th Century BC it was second only to Syracuse. The archeological site includes several temples. Part of the excavated ancient city, amazing ruins more than 2500 years old. And a beautiful landscape.

The prestigious “Nocellara del Belice” olive variety has been grown here for centuries. An unrepeatable combination of the local soil and microclimate gives origin to DOP certified table olives and excellent extra-virgin olive oil.
