Wine tasting at Pupillo Winery
“Our family’s story and passion for our region.” - Carmela
Taste a wine born from hectares of land set between the medieval castle, sea and lava stones from an ancient volcano: an authentic expression of Sicily. Experience marvelous hospitality in a charming garden.
Not far from one of the first Greek colonies in Sicily, the Targia estate extends for more than 140 hectares. Set between the Ionian Sea, the Euryalus fortress ruins and the Walls of Dionysius it represents a long-standing family tradition. The Pupillo Farm has recovered the lost taste of Siracusa’s Muscat and renewed the more established Nero d’Avola. The vineyards grow on thriving mixed terrains. The calcareous component gives a delicacy to the Muscat grapes and alternates with a volcanic element that reinforces the density of the red grapes. In this green oasis, with the fertile plains of Epipoli and the salty Mediterranean air, prestigious labels that strengthened the family's tradition and recounted the history of Siracusa were born. The tasting will take place after the guided tour of the historical buildings of the farm, including Frederick’s beam, the beam of memories, the ancient garden, and the old eighteenth-century millstone. Following this, you will be able to sit back and relax in the wine cellar for a tasting of five wines paired with traditional rustic dishes: various cold meats, salami and local cheeses, Tumminia bread with olive oil, “Impanate” and “Vota Vota” with vegetables and ricotta (typical Sicilian savory dishes), olives and salad. This is a unique experience within a fairy-tale setting, which will fill your stomach and your heart.
