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!
Our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the vineyard we visited they too were very hospitable. We recommend you book this tour!
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!
