One of the remotest vineyards/winery I’ve visited; a long winding drive right into the depths of Sicily through some beautiful, seemingly empty countryside. Eventually we reached our destination – the winery and private guest house – Tasca d’Almerita. Their wines thrilled and excited us (being a Circle of Wine Writers group) as much as the location. The Sicily tour was certainly a highlight of 2013.

This photograph was taken during a very early morning photo shot. Dawn shoots during a wine tour are, shall we say, ‘tricky’!
