Proceed South to visit the famous Pachino Tomatoes production.
The southern end of Sicily, which was known by the name of Promontorium Pachyni during ancient times, represents one of the excellent areas in the agricultural backdrop of the island. Several factors render it so exceptional: the strength of the most intense solar irradiance in the Old Continent, the right salinity in irrigation water, sun exposition, the composition and texture of the soil. These factors characterise the organoleptic properties of popular IGP products (Protected Geographical indication) such as the Tomatoes of Pachino . The white limestone hills surrounding Pachino will be the background to our tour. The bright red of the IGP Tomatoes of Pachino together with the intense colour of the DOC Eloro Pachino will be the absolute protagonists of our tour. We will start the tour from a farm specialized in the production and processing of tomatoes – here, we will enjoy a small tasting itinerary.
