Wine and Cheese in Sicily

Buon Giorno,
In the province of Agrigento San Stefano di Quisquina is renowned for it's cheese, all sorts. You should be able to hunt something down on line. As far as visiting the wineries (Tasca d'Almerita, yum, and Planeta, yum, don't overlook Firriato , yum as well) Most tastings need to be booked and are for 8+ people minimum. Although we've never managed to gather 8 people at once, I've had really nice responses from both Planeta and Tasca d'Almerita, just contact them through their websites. We live in the province of Agrigento, in Cianciana, there is a wonderful local cheese producer here, but I wouldn't know about visiting (Rose of Taoromina-Ricotta), but maybe the townhall could help
Buon Viaggio
