A thorough guided exploration of the territory on Monte Adranone. We stop for a break at a local cheesemaking farm where you will savour the “Vastedda del Belice”, filled with a sheep’s milk cheese which carries the Slowfood label, together with other local specialities.
A visit to the delightful Sambuca di Sicilia founded in the year 827 by the Islamic Prince Zabut, which is surrounded by vineyards and in direct view of Lake Arancio.
Take a stop off at the town’s pastry shop and taste the Minne di Vergini, an ancient pastry with the form of a woman’s breast, that goes back to 1725 when a nun created a pastry for a noble wedding. She was inspired by the hills that rolled along from Castellaccio to the coast of Minnulazza and created their shape in pastry, filling them with the sweet delicious products from the land, “so as to awake the senses when tasting and alleviate the spirit.” The pastry has a cream filling, with a cedar confiture, clove and cinnamon essences and chocolate, all covered in glacé icing. This pastry is recognised and protected by the local Authority of Agrigento as the typical pastry of Sambuca di Sicilia.
