You’ll be in the care of one of the island’s most renowned wine producers at the superb La Foresteria Planeta. This hotel, which overlooks the rolling vineyards, is a contemporary jewel in an ancient landscape. With impeccable décor and luxury appointments, the rooms still manage to retain a cosy and traditional ambience. In addition to a fabulous restaurant and a wellness centre, you may want to pay the onsite wine cellar a visit…
Planeta’s cooking classes are legendary: the chef of Casa Planeta, Angelo Pumilia, takes participants on a culinary tour of the local tastes and gastronomic traditions in the most delightful way. He covers the preparation, using fresh ingredients, such as herbs, vegetables, and other unique local ingredients. Naturally, the lesson concludes with a scrumptious meal and a fantastic glass of wine. If you’d like to make sure that you retain everything you learn, you can also purchase a copy of Casa Planeta’s book, entitled Sicilia, la Cucina di Casa Planeta.
