You will spend a great time in the Plain of Licata. La Lumia Estate is set just there,
where the river Salso flows into the sea. It covers a total area of 150
hectares, whose excellent Sicilian land is optimal for the vineyard
cultivation thanks to its strong luminosity, its proximity to the sea
and the strong temperature range between day and night.
The winery uses only grape varieties selected among the best in Sicily, like Nero d'Avola and Inzolia, from which it gets incredible wines known for their intensity as well as for their taste. The entire process of winemaking, from vinification to grape-processing, from aging to bottling, takes place here between the solid walls of the wonderful Arabian-style farmhouse.
In the Cellar you will taste top sicilian wines, partly produced according to very ancient winemaking-systems, developed in the 5th Century B.C. by the Rhodian-Cretan colons. Your Tour will wind across the vineyards, the "Baglio" and the cellar-museum, which contains old winemaking tools together with various rural-agricultural and military-historical finds and other discoveries belonging to the Sicilian aristocracy described in the book "The Leopard".
You will taste 3 wines coupled with typical sicilian food.
Guided tour of Cellar, the "Baglio" and museum with multilingual guide. You will taste three wines together with local cheese, olives, breadsticks, bread and the so called moffoletti (typical Licata bread).
