Degustazione vini a Siracusa - Cantine Gulino

Wine tasting is a unique, special, memorable moment.
It’s more than a quick drink or a simple meal accompaniment to food.

As you approach the excellent fruits of the vines, the aromas and fragrances emanating from the glass immediately envelop you and, with curiosity or skill, you grasp the nuances of colour and flavour.
With a wine tastings you live an experience: you can almost see the twisted tendrils of the vine that thrives every season, while the grapes ripen and, from harvest to harvest, become the wine that tells our story; you can almost feel the breath of the wind, the scent of the sea, the sweet warmth of the sun, the pungent smell of the countryside.

As wise and expert explorers, our Chalices of History take you by the hand through the folds of time and history, evoking myths, legends and traditions of the past, revealing just for you the beauty of the landscape which has so much to tell through wine and its typical products.

You don’t have to be an expert sommelier to appreciate wine tastings: they are sensory experiences and, at the same time, a journey through the history and cultural traditions of the territory that anyone can enjoy. All you need is a pinch of curiosity and a lively interest in the places and lands that give wine its distinctive characteristics and make it an excellent storyteller.

A sip, at the tip of the lips. ⁣ Isolate yourself, meanwhile, concentrate, remain still,
to allow the taste to rise to the brain, the spirit to become spirit and, without a doubt, think it. ⁣

The Sicilian tradition in a glass of wine and in the scents of our typical recipes.

Wine tasting with our proposals of wine and typical local products.

There is a little world in a bottle of wine.
The sun that warms the Spring and burns the skin in Summer.
The breath of the wind coming boldly from the sea.
The hand of the vigneron and his intense, hard, beautiful work.
His passion condensed in a glass of wine.
The history of the places where the wine is born that lives in the lively aromas, in the strong character, in the enveloping fragrances. An experience to live, to get lost in those scents that contain the rich tradition of our land, Siracusa.

The dishes and tastings that accompany our wine tasting proposals are all homemade, according to the Sicilian tradition of which our cook Anna, passionate about wine, history and Sicily, is a feisty interpreter. Like us, Anna loves simplicity and genuineness, respects seasonality and, for her recipes, chooses only typical local products.
