A weekend with Mandrarossa
The Mandrarossa Vineyard Tour is the best excuse to spend a weekend drinking good wine and tasting the local food, surrounded by vineyards and the sea.
An event that has been held for the past 8 years, from the end of August to the beginning of September, with the goal of promoting our territory and its infinite treasures. Food & wine tastings, sports and guided excursions surrounded by Menfi’s uncontaminated nature, on an emotional discovery of a territory full of surprises. Horseback riding among the vineyards or biking on the trails from the Winery to the beach. A unique weekend in the Sicilian wine-producing panorama, starting from the manual harvest, leading to the technical tastings and other scheduled activities in the program and ending with a cheerful feast in the pine grove, sipping Mandrarossa wines.
to get excited
Food & wine tastings, sports and guided excursions surrounded by Menfi’s uncontaminated nature, on an emotional discovery of a territory full of surprises.
The harvest is a fun experience especially if in the company of our experts and if it ends with a fresh glass of wine to relax. It starts armed with shears and baskets among the vine rows and ends on the hill overlooking the sea, where the harvest is celebrated with a glass of wine and in good company.
The Vineyard Tour is the perfect opportunity to sample the Mandrarossa wines, in a picturesque setting, under the expert eyes of our technical staff.
Traditional and authentic dishes prepared by the knowledgeable hands of the Women of the Mandrarossa Brigade, sole keepers of the ancient recipes of the agricultural culinary art from Menfi.
Sports and excursions
Sports have always been one of our passions. For this reason, the Vineyard Tour is also the opportunity to have fun with activities such as windsurfing, kitesurfing, or mini rugby for the children. For nature lovers, horseback riding in the vineyards or a boat ride along the Sicilian coast while sipping a fresh glass of white wine.
As a culmination of this party atmosphere, there are live bands with the backdrop of a sunset without rivals.
2019 Edition and Mandrachef
Fun, engaging and exiting. Mandrachef is the show cooking that, during the 2019 Vineyard Tour, featured Valeria Raciti, winner of MasterChef 2018, and Andrea Lo Cicero, Mandrarossa Testimonial, facing off in the kitchen under the guidance of the Women of the Mandrarossa Brigade.
A journey through the typical local recipes accompanied by the women from the Brigade and revisited by the creative touch of Andrea and Valeria, who created the best dishes to be paired with the Mandrarossa wines. The guests were the judges of the competition, who expressed their votes after tasting each course. During the dinner, the Mandrarossa wines were presented by Roberta Urso, head of Public Relations, who guided the participants on the discovery of the flavors and aromas of the wines, selected to enhance the dishes cooked by the Chefs. At the end of the competition, our staff declared the winning menu.
The atmosphere of the Wine Dinner is evocative and for true connoisseurs. A dinner with a tasting menu prepared by Valeria Raciti. Four courses paired with four wines, served in a unique setting, where the vineyards and the sea define a landscape that needs to be enjoyed while eating exquisite food, a good glass of Mandrarossa wine and a slight sea breeze.
