On the Grapevine
Sicily’s rich, diverse terroirs have long fostered worldfamous wines. As one of Italy’s most important producers, a visit to Planeta’s Ulmo vineyard is a must for any oenophile. On the shores of the Lake Arancio, Ulmo has been part of the Planeta family for 17 generations. Now, guests are welcome to tour the vineyard and sample its famous wines with a hearty family lunch, stopping to explore the remains of the ancient Phoenician wine press. For those looking for a more intrepid wine adventure, take a day trip beginning at the ancient ruins of Selinunte, followed by a wine tasting at the nearby Florio Winery in Sicily’s famous Marsala region, and a visit to the beautiful island of Mothya.
