5 Day Course | 3 Day Course | Overnight Stay | Lesson & Lunch

Regaleali-Tasca d’Almerita is one of the most important wine-producing estates in Sicily. Most of the food that appears on its tables is produced on the farm: poultry, lamb, sheep’s milk cheese, wheat, olive oil, vegetables and fruit. Its fine wines accompany all meals.

Courses are held in the fall – late September, October an early November – and in the spring – March, April and May. Dates and programs may vary slightly. A maximum of 12 students can be accommodated. They will be guests in the homes of Anna and Costanza and others on the estate. For a minimum of 6 students, additional courses can be arranged with sufficient notice.

Regaleali is located in the “Heart of Sicily”, about one-and-a-half hours’ drive from Palermo. We suggest that you take the train to Vallelunga, our nearest town. You will be met at the station. There is a bus that goes from the airport to the railroad station in downtown Palermo. Let us know at what time your train arrives at Vallelunga. If you hire a car, before adventuring on winding Sicilian roads, you should contact the office at Regaleali to get directions.
