Gianni was an incredible tour guide - he drove us to a local, family owned winery and farmland, providing helpful information about the history of wine in Sicily along the way. The owner of the winery personally gave us a tour of his land and discussed his methods. His family and friends were having a party and made us feel very welcome - delicious food, exceptionally good wine, and an overall great time. I would highly recommend this day trip, and tour guide Gianni Grillo in particular. He could not have been friendlier, more helpful, or more accommodating. 5 stars!
Overall it was a great day in Alcamo. It was great to get not only knowledge about the wine but also the culture too. The home cooked meal was delicious as well. Despite the poor weather it was a great experience. Communication could be improved, we arranged for a pickup in Palermo, but was 1.5 hours late due to rain and traffic, but was difficult to get that information. Additionally, we paid for the full day wine tour but only visited with 1 winemaker. We made the most of it and was still worth while.
This was a very worthwhile trip! A fantastic way to see Sicily's lovely scenery and experience the beautiful wineries and culinary delights. Our driver was very knowledgeable and tailored our trip perfectly. Thank you!
My wife and I were in Favignana for our honeymoon and booked a half day wine tour with
Easy Trapani. We took the ferry and met with Gianni from Easy Trapani at Caffe Staiti since
it's right by the ferry. We were expecting a touristy van to come pick us up but we ended up
having a private tour alone with Gianni which was great! He drove us to downtown Alcomo where
he dropped us off a winery and food store and introduced us to Vincenzo and his wife Liliana
who owned the store and winery. Vincenzo then drove us around the Alcomo countryside and
finally our first stop was at his Adamo Vineyard where he grew organic grapes and other
vegetables. He taught us about the local grapes and tasted them straight from the vine! He
then drove us to his cellar where we tasted his Catarratto, Grillo and Nero d'Avalo wines
which were amazing! With the wine he served homemade bread baked in an olive wood fired oven,
fresh oregano, sheep's milk cheese made by his neighbor and plenty of delicacies. He then gave
us a tour of his cellar and showed us machines and tools used to make wine past and present.
At the end of the tour we bought 6 bottles and Gianni drove us back to the ferry.
This was definitely the most personal and best wine tour I've ever had. I've done wine
tours in Oregon, South Africa and Australia and nothing compares to the authenticity of this
tour. Easy Trapani may take you to other vineyards but I am only writing about our experience
with Adamo. I wish all tours could be something like this!
We had the opportunity to go on a semi-private tour and it happens to be in Alcamo when the vineyard were making some kind of party. We had the chance to assist to that very nice place and meet with locals and learn more about the wine and the culture.
I was staying in Palermo for 2 nights and wanted to do a wine tour in the western part of Sicily as I heard many good things about Sicilian wine. The tour was organized by Easy Trapani. It was very enjoyable and we got to have lunch with the owner of an organic vineyard. You get a local experience!
