Cantina Quattrocieli in Alcamo, a vineyard I visited in September (pictured), reported that they tasted their novello (new wine) for San Martino, and they are happy with the results thus far.

After an arduous year of meticulously caring for the vines, pruning them, constantly minding the ground at the bases of the plants, and praying for fare weather conditions, in September, wine makers harvested their grapes for the next step of the wine making process. Today's production is done in laboratory-like cantinas of stainless steel... An assembly line of gleaming containers and pipes,.all leading to a hearty grape juice that is then put through a weeks-long (sometimes months-long) process of filtration and fermentation. I'm really over simplifying this... But the idea is that tomorrow, November 11, for the Feast of Saint Martin, the vintners seek the first taste of their year's work to gauge how the wine is progressing. #wine #vino #winetourism #enotourism #grapes #grapevines #uva #sanmartino #saintmartin #winetravel #winemaking #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

The Feast of Saint Martin is approaching. Saint Martin is the patron saint of vintners, soldiers, the poor, wool-weavers, geese, and the country France. For vintners, November 11 marks the first tasting of the new wine, known as “novello.” Wine making is a long process that starts with the pruning and caring for the vines and the earth that sustains them. #grapevines #grapes #vines #etna #etnarosso #etnabianco #etnawine #benanti #sanmartino #saintmartin #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily #sicilytour

My heart is heavy knowing about the loss of life because of the Milicia River spontaneously swelling in Casteldaccia, Sicily over the weekend due to torrential rains. When I heard the tragic news, I immediately thought of the Madonna of the Milicia, the painting, pictured, that is venerated in Casteldaccia and Altavilla Milicia, coastal towns next to where my family lives. I visited the sanctuary a few years ago. Similar to other Madonnas, the Madonna of the Milicia has a similar story of arrival. In 1636, after having ravaged the coastal villages of Altavilla, a Saracen pirate ship was making its way toward Palermo to raid the city, but for some reason, it couldn’t navigate past Capo Zafferano, to the west. Legend is that the non-Christian ship’s crew was using the sacred painting pictured as a porthole lid, and when they couldn’t proceed west, out of superstition, they threw the painting into the sea thinking it would be best served in Christian hands (and would free them of their navigation troubles). The painting drifted east to Altavilla (to the mouth of the Milicia River), where the distraught townspeople received it with joy. They employed an oxen-pulled cart to show them where the Madonna wanted to reside. That spot is where today, the sanctuary for the Madonna della Milicia houses the painting. Because the distraction it created saved Palermo from the wrath of the pirates, the painting is venerated throughout the region. #casteldaccia #milicia #madonna #madonnadellamilicia #palermo #altavilla #altavillamilicia #divinefeminine #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily #smallgrouptoursitaly #sicilytour

Orlando and Rolando, our heroes from the opera dei pupi theater, make an appearance off-stage, today, for the Day of the Dead, known in Sicilian as, un juornu re muorti; yet this time, as sugar dolls, or pupaccene, pictured. Pupaccene, which today are only made by a handful of artisans in Sicily, are traditionally produced exclusively during this feast period. Because the rituals of the Day of the Dead (also known as All Souls Day) summon passed relatives, in order not to scare children, "the visiting dead" leave toys and sweets--i.e. pupaccene and frutta Martorana--to be eagerly found when they wake on November 2. #dayofthedead #november2 #pupaccene #orlando #sugardolls #juornuremuorti #festa #feast #allsoulsday #palermo #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily #sicilytour

All Saints Day is a day to remember all the saints known and unknown. On All Saints Day, November 1, we also remember martyrs, like Santa Lucia of Siracusa, pictured, who adorns the city's Duomo. (Save the Date: Sunday, December 9, we are hosting our annual Festa di Santa Lucia luncheon @cacioevinonyc in NYC. When I'll share Lucia's inspirational story with you. Preview: Even the oxen the Romans called in couldn't move her from where she stood! Her faith was immovable. I hope you'll join us!

We are upon the feast celebrations of the Day of the Dead (Giorno dei Morti, or in Sicilian, Un juornu re muorti), All Saints Day, and All Souls Day (Nov. 2). Although traditions are changing as a result of the modern world, in the past, on November 2, Sicilians, who have a profound appreciation for the connection of life and death, spent the holiday recognizing their dead loved ones by visiting their graves to pay tribute. They ritually had picnics at the graves. Today, however, celebrating the dead with a feast is done more often at home. To avoid scaring the children too much with the summoning the dead, which is the object of the feast, there is a tradition of the youngsters waking up to find toys or sweets that have been left by the visiting dead relatives. Before the mid-20th century, that meant frutta Martorana (marzipan sculpted to look like fruit, like that pictured by my friend, artisan Alessandro Marchese) and sugar dolls, called pupaccene, which are still made today explicitly for this holiday by a handful of artisan bakers in Sicily. #dayofthedead #giornodeimorti #halloween #fruttamartorana #pastareale #marzipan #martorana #alessandromarchese #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

That mozzarella di bufala that you love so much is made from the milk of these ladies: water buffalo from Campania in southern Italy. Water buffalo are not related to the North American animal of the same name. Fun fact: they bark. They don't moo. They are also hard to cultivate, so your best bet to meet them and eat the most outrageous mozzarella di bufala ever is to join me, @experiencesicily, and @feastonhistory (who took this photo) for Southern Secrets: Campania and Sicily's Hidden Corners from June 28 to July 7, 2019. It’s five days in Campania and five days in Sicily, and it's going to be marvelous! Did I mention we take care of all of the details?

Today I was at the Brooklyn "Club" of the brotherhood of New Yorkers from Licodia Eubea, Sicily in Catania province. My contact, author Natale Caruso, showed me old photos of the town. And well, I have a matching one I took from the castle in May this year to one he had from the 1920s! Check out the differences! Natale has written a memoir about his youth in Licodia Eubea, and we're organizing an event for him to share his stories (stay tuned for that). Meanwhile, I am hosting a beyond-the-ordinary tour, based in Licodia Eubea, July 11-23, 2019. We'll stay in holiday apartments and family-run inns and have opportunities to commune with the locals and participate in the feast for their patroness, Santa Margherita. Life in a Remote Sicilian Town offers curious travelers, families, and those who have already been to Sicily something off the beaten path, alongside visits many of Sicily's UNESCO Heritage Sites. All you have to do is pack, and we'll take care of the details.

Too often I've had people tell me that they don't like cannoli. But to me, that's like saying you don't like red wine. Because like red wine, each cannolo (in Italian, the singular of cannoli) has a distinct flavor, texture, and ultimately, culinary experience that is dependent on how it's made, the ingredients used, and from where those ingredients came. There is so much to this classic, Sicilian pastry! When you come with me on the @cannolicrawl_nyc, or on an @experiencesicily tour with me in Sicily, you learn about these nuances, and by the end, you become a Cannoli Connoisseur. Once you achieve this distinction, you will never again let your friends eat a bad cannolo. Next Cannoli Crawl is November 10 in New York City.

Look what’s for dessert? Sicilian after dinner ‘digestives’ are homemade from various fruits and herbs. They are a delicious way to end the meal.

Congratulations to my friends Danielle Oteri and Christian Galliani, proprietors of @arthuravefoodtours and @feastonhistory, for this cover feature on this week's New Yorker magazine! Included in the full piece (at https://www.newyorker.com/culture/cover-story/cover-story-2018-10-29), there are a number of beautiful illustrations from their food and shopping tour, including one of Danielle cradling a loaf of bread at Madonie Brothers Bakery. What does this have to do with Sicily? Well, June 28 to July 7, 2019, Danielle and I are co-hosting a 10-day tour together, Southern Secrets: Campania and Sicily's Hidden Corners. It's a unique opportunity to explore two regions of Italy with two insiders. How much more cool can one get than being in the New Yorker?!

"The sea at Zafferano flashes cross my mind... I come from a braver kind... I feel so alive, I feel so sure, with the sun on my path and the wind at my back..." Capo Zafferano, pictured, and my grandparents' immigration from this area, inspired my song and performance, "Jump," released ten years ago this month. I hope my music inspires you!

When you see an apple tree in the middle of the vineyard, that's when you understand why, when you taste wine, it possesses a hint of apples--because the grapes and the apple tree are all feeding off of the same ground water. #vineyard #vigna #vigneto #etna #appletree #melo #wine #vino #etnarosso #etnabianco #nerellomascalese #benanti #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #traveltogether #authenticsicily

In other words, the red carpet! Learn more about our May, June, July, September, and October tours of Sicily at https://ExperienceSicily.com.

"The flower transforms, completes, hides, animates. It is a natural presence turned in this case into a symbol for the contemporary world; living matter that conveys a whole universe of symbols with roots in the most ancient cultures and mythologies. Flowers, and nature in general, are an image of life, a metaphor for the renewal of the cycle of seasons, symbol of joy and grief, earthly passion and celestial love. The flower possesses a reparatory function, and is a symbol of rebirth and energy: it tries to repair the inadequacy of mankind, and makes amends for those places that have been abandoned and neglected.” In the beautiful words of the artists Vinci/Galesi

Tucked away near the castle that gives Castellamare del Golfo its name is the Chiesa di Maria SS del Rosario, which is believed to have been built in such a secluded corner during the Norman era, circa 1100, to hide it from invading pirates. Inside is this alter devoted to the Madonna dell'Agnuni, or Madonna of the Angle (Yes, I mean the point where two lines meet.). The statue is without doubt, a "Black Madonna" and child. As is the case with the Black Madonna of Tindari and most Black Madonnas found throughout Europe, this Black Madonna statue, I was told by the caretaker the day I visited, was "discovered mysteriously." This particular one was found in a cave near the temple at Segesta, which is not far from Castellamare del Golfo. The symbolism of the Black Madonna is very powerful to those who are devoted to it. She represents divine, sensual feminine power. Origins of her worship are traced to the Mother Earth goddess, which could be a number of mystery cult figures ranging from Cybele or Astarte/Ishtar or Aphrodite/Venus or Demeter and Kore. Her dark coloring is representative of the fertile earth itself. Black Madonnas can be found throughout the Mediterranean. When you are aware of their existence, their location and the story behind how they arrived, are, more often than not, a point of intrigue. #castellamaredelgolfo #madonnanera #blackmadonna #divinefeminine #madonnadellagnuni #trapani #segesta #statue #statua #altar #chapel #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

Along with @valdikam_pierfilippo_spoto, I was interviewed last month in Sicily by @in3minuti.it news about relational tourism and why we, @experiencesicily, bring our clients to the Sicanian mountains of south-central Sicily... And why we program more time in Agrigento Province than most tour operators. The answer is simple: If you want an authentic experience in Sicily, then meeting the people who make their lives in mountain villages beyond the beaten path and having a "slow opportunity" to soak up the energy of life in the hidden corners (if even for one day), it is in this untouched part of the island, where it is possible. This is where you feel an authentic Sicily. This is what reaches your heart! It is why we established Experience Sicily, and what we want to offer to you, our clients - - a transformational, personal experience.  Here's a link to watch the interview: https://www.in3minuti.it/una-tour-operator-americana-a-santangelo-muxaro/... But don't just watch. Come. Join me in 2019. Next year at this time, will be so happy you did. #valdikam #amuni #sicani #santangelomuxaro #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

"By what guile did the mighty Host-to-Many deceive you?” the Goddess Demeter asked her daughter Persephone in the The Homeric Hymn to Demeter (As translated by Helene P. Foley). ... If you guessed that Hades (the "Host-to-Many") deceived Persephone by feeding her pomegranate seeds (based on the photo), you are correct. Hades' cunning action condemned Persephone to spend part of each year in the Underworld as his wife. Pomegranates, which are in season now, have been cultivated throughout the Mediterranean for thousands of years. Scholars believe that they were brought to Sicily by both the Phoenicians and the Greeks, not only for food, but also for religious reasons. Pomegranate seeds represent fertility, prosperity, abundance, and generosity. And because of the Persephone myth, they also represent the cycle of life and death, for when Persephone goes to the underworld (i.e. autumn and winter), she brings the seeds with her into the depths of the Earth, and when she returns to the surface with seeds in hand in spring, she brings abundance. #pomegranateseeds #pomegranate #melagrana #semidimelagrano #persephone #demeter #kore #divinefeminine #divinafeminina #dea #goddess #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

I can’t even express the gratitude I have towards our friend Pepe in showing us how to make traditional Sicilian bread and feeding us true Sicilian food. And not only is this recipe traditional, but it’s the bread that generations have made in his village of Pollina for years. ALL of the ingredients he uses to make this bread AND his normal day cooking, are sourced from within 10km of his village, including the salt and flour! Thank you Pepe for showing us what “farm to table” really means without even ever having heard this phrase 🙏

Mushroom hunting is a real sport on Mount Etna that requires training, a government issued license... And usually one of these typical baskets made with river reeds! In season now, on October 28 in Zafferana Etnea for Ottobrata, mushrooms will be the star of the celebration. #mushroom #mushrooms #mushrooms🍄 #funghi #zafferanaetnea #etna #mountetna #sagra #ottobrata #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

This is my new soap dispenser, made for me by ceramic artist Angelo Varsallona, @ceramichea.varsallona, who is based in Caltagirone. In May, I went hunting along the famous stairs of the baroque town seeking two different dispensers for our new apartment. When I couldn't find what I was looking for, Angelo offered to make them for me. I went back in September and picked them up. This one is in our newly renovated bathroom. I'll post the kitchen one another time.

In the #life #Priceless things are made by #love and if you don't feel love you'll  never be #rich enough.
Nella #vita le cose impagabili sono fatte dall'#amore e se non provi amore non sarai mai #ricco abbastanza.

This is what it looks like inside of a lava cave on Mount Etna. That is, when we are with our expert guides! Lava caves, also known as lava tubes, are formed during a volcanic eruption, simply put, when the outer part of lava flow cools faster than its center. Etna has more than 200 lava caves that we know of. These natural phenomena can be visited, but don't do so on your own! They are pitch black and can be horizontal or vertical. So, in other words, you can fall into a lava cave that could be hundreds of feet deep, yet you can't see where it goes. The horizontal ones, such as this one, the Grotta delle Neve (the Snow Cave), may be visited with knowledgeable guides who furnish you with proper equipment such as hard hats and flashlights. Going deep into the earth's surface is one of the joys of visiting Etna. In 2019, I'll be bringing our May, July, and October groups for such an adventure. #etna #mountetna #volcano #vulcano #catania #lavacave #lavatube #grotta #cave #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

When eating a gelato con brioche (a light, sweet, butter-infused roll (brioche) cut in half and stuffed with gelato), the question always is: Who will win: you or the brioche? I think I did pretty well here in Aspra with my pistachio.

In Medieval times while in Caccamo, you definitely would have wanted to be on this side of the view from the castle, because if not, you may have been in line to have hot oil poured on you as a means of defence! However, this Sunday, you won't mind being down on the streets below, because that is where the local butchers will be hosting the Sagra della Salsiccia, or the annual sausage festival. Sausage lovers everywhere will revel in the hot charcoal and smoke flavoring the glories of the Madonie Mountains. And the cannoli and live music accenting the day's events are pretty good too! #caccamo #palermo #castello #castle #castellodicaccamo #sagra #sagradellasalsicca #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

Currently, the village of Porticello, where my grandfather was born and raised, is celebrating the feast of its patroness the Madonna del Lume (The Madonna of the Light). I've experienced the feast of couple of times, 2015, pictured here. Traditionally, on the Monday of the feast, the sacred painting of the Madonna is taken down from the altar of the village church and processed throughout the fishing village and its port. Devotees pack the sanctuary hoping for an opportunity to touch and rub the painting on its way to the street in order to possess its healing and protective powers. It's a moving moment to experience. Origins of the parish and its feast date back to the 1700s. Origins of the painting are explained by popular tales, one of which states that it arrived by the waves of the sea pushing it up to the village's Pier of San Nicolicchio. Another states that a Jesuit priest, Jan Antonio Genovese, in the 18th century, painted the image under the guidance of the Madonna. It was his gift to the fisherman, who impressed him with their significant faith. Legend is that the Madonna blessed the work upon its completion. #porticello #santaflavia #madonnadellume #madonna #feast #festa #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily

Cannoli were the gateway to my Italian and Sicilian heritage. Yup, the @cannolicrawl_nyc and @experiencesicily stem from my love of this world-renowned pastry. Growing up, I thought everyone ate cannoli for holidays. I didn’t know it was an Italian dessert. Today, I know a lot about cannoli, and I love sharing an outstanding one with friends. Join me for the Cannoli Crawl, a walking, tasting, and New York City history tour. We eat, we walk, we eat, we learn some history, and we eat! And you eat very good food—not just cannoli, but savory dishes too. Book Now for Sat.

October in Sicily means harvest festivals and sagras celebrating the abundance of the season. Each Sunday of this month in the town of Zafferana Etnea, pictured, on the east slope of Etna, they host the 40th edition of Ottobrata Zafferanese, a culture and food festival celebrating the typical products of the volcanic region. Each Sunday features a different product, such as the honey that Zafferana Etnea is famous for, porcini mushrooms, which are abundant and in season now, and more. Live music, craft making demonstrations, tastings, and community all await in the center of town, at this spot. Next October, we'll be starting our Savoring Sicily tour with this feast! The full itinerary, from October 12 to 24, 2019 will be available in the days ahead.

This weekend is the Pistacchio Festival in Bronte, a town world renowned for its pistachio cultivation. The mineral-rich lava stone-soil on Mount Etna's Western slopes, photographed from a pistachio farm I visited with a private, custom tour I led in May, offers fertile environs for the trees to grow. #bronte #etna #mountetna #volcano #vulcano #pistachio #pistacchio #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #sicilians_world #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #gf_italy #siculamenteDoc #sicily_tricolors #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #smallgrouptours #traveltogether #authenticsicily #smallgrouptoursitaly

Our last two days of our @experiencesicily Stirring Sicily East tour were full of cooking, eating, and connecting with Sicilians. Between our personal tour of @zest_lititz teacher/chef Nino's home town, Termini Immerse, and a private concert of Sicilian folk music given by my musician friends here in Casteldaccia, we enjoyed a unique experience. What a wonderful group of people passionate about good food and passionate for life! Thank you to you all! Alla prossima!

Join me! Cannoli Crawls in New York City October 13 and 27. More at link in bio. Meanwhile, since I'm currently in Sicily, my cannoli research continues! That means tasting a cannoli at a location I've been before, but during September, versus May. This one at La Ruota in Piazza Armerina remains top five! What season it is makes the cannoli taste differently? You ask? Yes, it does! Come on the Cannoli Crawl (or with me to Sicily in 2019), to find out why! #piazzaarmerina #laruota #cannoli #cannolo #cannolicrawl #sicilyinnewyork #thisisnewyorkcity #walkingtour #stirringsicily #cookinginsicily #sicilycooking #cookingtour #foodtravel #sicilyfoodtravel #zestchef #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #italy #italia #sicilyvacation #ig_sicily #igerssicilia #instasicilia #ig_visitsicily #Sicilia_PhotoGroup #traveltogether #authenticsicily #smallgrouptours
