My guide Serena knows how to manage a large group. She’s an expert on ‘everything Marsala’: the history, the process and the taste. We are invited in one of the 4 warehouses and walk among 3000 oak barrels stacked on tuff floors close to the sea.

This was a great way to kill a couple of hours and their new shop was great. Be ready for the super cheesy film at the end of the tour though!

Paid 10 Euro for each adult to tour Florio winery. We had a guide called Viviennah who was excellent, informative and passionate about the history of the company. She answered all queries and encouraged us to take photos. Tour finished with a classy tasting of three wines with a small food accompaniment. Then to an impressive cellar door for purchases. Overall a very professional operation.

Whenever I travel I always seem to seek out a cellar or brewery tour. We'd missed the boat for our day trip to the Egadi Islands, so headed over to Florio for an afternoon tour. The tasting was the bit I was waiting for, and it was great. I now have a taste for the virgin Marsala as an aperitif. The shop is good, so we filled the boot of our Fiat 500 with Marsala and other wines to see us through our long road trip (at the end of the day I hasten to add, not on the road!) There is a great wine bar in Marsala for sampling other brands. Friendly staff and tasty snacks served.

The tour at Florio is for 1 hour in either english or italian and at a cost of 10euros...I am feeling a little cheated right now as I didn't get to see the film as some of the other reviewers have noted!
Anyway I did enjoy the tour, and the tasting of the wines was very well done and presented. The shop at the end is great too and if you enjoyed any of the wines at the tasing, you will just have to take one home. Quite impressive all in all and a good way to learn a little about Marsala and its wine.

We paid 10 Euros each for the English speaking tour.
We learnt a good deal about Marsala production, the Florio firm's history and had a tasting at the end of three of their products.
I was expecting some more anecdotes, rather than a fairly textbook history. Considering the important role of the British navy in creating a market for Marsala and the connection with Nelson, I would have expected a bit about that rather than some of the fairly unexciting family history of the Florios.
The tasting was rather nicely done, with a flashy video introduction to each wine and bits of food to go with each wine.
It obviously ended with a shop where it would have been stupid not to buy a bottle of the "cooking" Marsala for 4 Euros!

Beware of the wine tasting times - these are usually held at 3.15 in the afternoon and they are not very accomodating to people who turn up because they happen to be in the area. Pity as we would have bought alot of wine.

We had a guided tour of the premises, primarily the storage area where we also learnt alot about Marsala wine in general, and the Florio history in particular. I wish we could have seen more of the actual production. The tour ended up with a tasting of four different wines. The Florio premises are really nice, and seems to be well kept. The guide did a good job, and was fluent in English. Seemed to know her wines :-)

This was a fantastic tour, was extremely informative and put a whole new perspective on the Marsala wines which Florio produces - some VERY high quality wines that are much different from the Florio Marsala wines that we buy in the U.S for cooking.

Our guide was Sara, and she was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Florio line, as well as all of the details regarding how all of the various varieties are produced. She was very enthusiastic and not only had very good English, but also a lot of vernacular terms. in addition, I had exchanged several Emails with her regarding available times during All-Saints holiday and she also gave me very detailed directions to reach them from Sciacca, where were driving from

The "tasting" at the end is definitely not your typical tasting - it was a very elaborate, classy, high-tech interactive audio/video session.

This definitely exceeded our expectations and would highly recommend it if you are anywhere within a couple of hours of Marsala.
