In Sicily, tradition is often lined to ancient walls and anecdotes, antiquities, old stuff. With its new La Foresteria Resort, the Planeta wine making family has established a refreshing contrast, possibly because the family itself is still a young producer. I greatly enjoyed my stay in this modern, minimalist structure. The hotel is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, and from its tall windows one can see all the way to the sea. In front of the restaurant, the garden filled with aromatic herbs fills the air with a special fragrance. The swimming pool seems suspended over the vineyard. There is nothing to interrupt the creation of an intense relationship with the natural beauty surrounding the place, one of the main reasons for our visit. As well, of course, for the cuisine and Planeta’s fine wines.
