Scirocco Wine Fest è un progetto, inserito nel più ampio programma Destinazione Gibellina, che ha come obiettivo quello di costruire ponti tra queste culture così vicine tra loro, così intimamente connesse, come per buona parte della sua vita s’impegnò a fare una delle figure che hanno fatto la storia di Gibellina: Ludovico Corrao.

Scirocco Wine Fest

Is back in Gibellina (Trapani) from Thursday 27 to Sunday 30 June, Scirocco Wine Fest, the exhibition that compares the Mediterranean countries through wine.
Promoted by the group Cantine Ermes – Tenute Orestiadi, one of the most representative wineries of Sicily, the event focuses on the Mediterranean soul, art and culture of wine, alongside the culinary tradition of the territory and the entertainment.
Symbol of the initiative is the Sirocco, the wind that represents the Mediterranean sea as a red thread that “unites” the people who live it and permeates the cultures that are affected by it.

Tastings under the stars

The protagonist of Scirocco Wine Fest is definitely the wine, the result of love for nature and traditions, which comes from the countries on the Mediterranean shores, joining peoples and cultures, becoming the only denominator of the three days of conviviality and sharing.

Every evening, the wines of the seven countries hosting the event – France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey – will be tasted together with many Mediterranean specialties by Sanlorenzo Mercato.

It is a chance to compare and grow together, starting with the common denominator that characterizes the Mediterranean area, conquering cultures and religions: the Sirocco.
