This event is dedicated to only the dessert wines of the Mediterranean, hosted in the wonderful surroundings of the island of Pantelleria. Its jam-packed programme takes place over 4 days, including tastings at local wine cellars, music, talk shows, culture and much more besides. The island is home to Moscato Passito d’Alessandria and historically it has very strong connections with this grape variety. Flavours, nature and tourism all blend together at this event, which showcases wine as well as other fabulous, local food and wine products.
Guided tours of the beautiful local area are also organised, including the island’s archaeological area and nature reserves. Passitaly really shows off Pantelleria but it’s also open to the rest of the Mediterranean and Europe, in a climate of collaboration that has always been part of the local culture.
