Archeo Gusto: wine event at the Monastero dei Benedittini

I'm a bit late posting this, but this evening there is a wine event at the Monastero dei Benedettini in Catania, that will including learning about ancient winemaking by an expert from Egypt, tasting the wine of COS which is made using large ceramic jars buried in the ground, accompanied by middle eastern appetizers, and a visit to the medieval kitchens of the monastery. Should be fun for anyone in the area!


  1. Hey there! I'm visiting family near Catania for the week, and came across your blog. Do you know of any thrift/ second hand shops in the area??

  2. Hi there Eden, yes there is a vintage shop here in Catania that I have only heard about but always wanted to check out, here is the link to the store's blog, which is called rewintage:
    it is located across the street from the Botanical Gardens as a point of reference. Also there is a big used stuff/antique market every Sunday morning I believe, but not sure where. Enjoy your stay!

  3. This monastery visit sounds fantastic! I really want to get to Sicily and reading your blog has made me determined to do so.

    It's a long way for me to go but I can't postpone it, every year I get older


I'd love to hear from you!
