Sarah, our tour guide, speaks excellent English and is very passionate and well-informed re: the history of Florio and the making of marsala. The tour was followed by a tasting of four "wines", accompanied with tasty... More

We stopped in to see if we could get a tour of the winery but it was full :( so we went to the store to see about buying some wine. The staff was amazingly helpful and went the extra mile to try and explain what kind of different types of wine they have. I'm going back and doing the... More

I went with a tour group, I found it informative and with a variety to taste test at the end. Not sure if you would get that if not with an organised group. But i enjoyed...and liked the photography opportunity.

Hint: Florio and Donnafugata seem to be excellent both, but Donnafugata doesn't produce Marsala wine. So for learning something about Marsala, you have to go to Florio. The tour guide was very nice, the tour was very interesting. You learned the company's history as well as the making of Marsala. At the end there was an interesting tasting, including some... More

One main reason we came to Marsala was to learn about the wine. Most places were closed in the off season. ButFlorio was open getting gifts ready to ship for Christmas. It is a beautiful facility, the tour guide really helped us understand Marsala wines, and to have a greater appreciation of them. We feel this is a "don't miss"... More

This was a horrible experience. We left the tour after 15 minutes and demanded a refund. (Which we got). We entered the english tour for 10€/each. We were shown a 4D movie, with moving chairs and pressurized air side-effects. The movie was very childish and hard to follow (because of the moving chairs). Worst of all: the air nozzle also...

Florio reminded me of being in a Hollywood movie, or on set. The barrel rooms were tremendous and absolutely beautiful. The tasting was a bit comical (the guided movie), but the tasting itself made you frel like you were in another world- a true sicilian experince and nothing short of spectacular!

Myself and my wife visited this winery. Not a bad tour and I really enjoyed the tasting at the end. Very little in explaining the process of making the desert wine but enjoyable nonetheless.

Interesting history of the Florios and the Marsala Wine. I really enjoyed it. The tasting was great and you are able to buy the products afterwards - surprisingly cheap.
