Great visit at the farm making memories and new friends!!
Jul 2018 • Family
After a visit and a scheduling mis communication we are headed back to Menfi to the Montalbano Organic farm. Arrived there and went to the store. We were buzzed in right away. Virginia was there to greet us and told us that Antonino would be there. He got there and told us that he was moving to the front of the store to pick us up. So we went out front and climbed into Antonino’s car. He said first to the olive trees and then to the grape vines. He talked the whole way. He told us about the farm and about the laboratory where he does analysis and experiments on the grapes to make the best wines and all of the other products they currently make. He also said they will soon have some new products. I asked if he did other things along with the farm? We found out he is a teacher of chemistry, science and math. Got to the olive trees got out and Antonino told us about the trees. How long they can live, how long before a new tree will produce. I told him that I had on my bucket list to pick olives from an olive tree in Italy. He said absolutely so they took pictures of me picking olives from the tree. Very cool. Then we got back in the car and drove to the vineyards. He showed us two different grapes. The first was a new grape. Purple on the outside but the pulp inside was a beautiful red. They tasted so good. Then we saw a shiny green grape. Tasting them, they were such a sweet grape. He told us all about wine production. Then we headed back to the store. When we walked in the table was set with breads covered with the spreads they produce, some cups of 2 other products. The mother Cristina came in and another relative named Rossa Maria was there. They were all so very kind and friendly. A bottle of wine they made was opened. It was very good. I had decided to buy some things and have them shipped. Laura was buying things with the plan of putting them in her checked bag. We were all laughing and the Mother asks do I have Facebook. So we are all pulling up our Facebook accounts and friend requesting each other. It was one of those belly laugh moments. When we had finished our orders we left after much cheek kissing and hugs having made some really nice friends. I will be happy when the Montalbano products can be ordered on line and I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my box. In the meantime we can e-mail them and arrange a delivery. I know quite a few of my American family and friends who would love their products. I would highly recommend a visit to the farm and store. It will be a lifelong fond memory for me.

Little shop but big selection of products
Sep 2017
We went to this shop in Via Michelangelo on recommendation of a good friend. Although the opening hours (that we checked only at arrival) said "closed" we luckily and surprisingly got attended by someone (as we later knew: the shop owner's mother). She introduced us to the wide rage of their products (olive oil, wines, vinegars, jams, herbs, spices, tomato concentrates, you name it) very competently and friendly. Some of their own production is certified (or in the process of being certified) organic and all just looked really attractive. You can also try many different things before buying. We communicated in a mix of French, Italian and English, no problem :). If you can't take your favourite products with you in the plane, like in our case, they are really helpful with arranging the logistics (dependent on where you want to ship to it might not work out though). Otherwise you find the Azienda Agricola Montalbano once or twice per year on fairs in Ettlingen, Germany (twin town of Menfi). We're know impatiently waiting for our organic olive oil to arrive... Thanks for all the help!

We spent a very pleasant couple of hours with Antonio touring his vineyards, tasting grapes and watching how the grape harvest works. Antonio was a congenial host and the tastings at his deli afterwards were the icing on the cake. Even our and two children (7 and 9 yrs) enjoyed it! Thank you Antonio.

Azienda Agricola Montalbano shop in Menfi
Jun 2014 • Friends
A must do if you are in this part of Sicily. A lovely little delicatessen shop in Menfi selling organic produce from the local organic family run farm. This includes wine, olive oil, pates, Jams, honey. They are beautifully packaged and make lovely gifts. The best part is the fantastic Sicilian hospitality. We popped in to buy some local food to eat during our stay and spent a happy hour there. a table was laid for us and various members of the family bought us various items to taste along with some wine to wash it down, at 11:30 on the morning! The food was fantastic and the experience great fun, highly recommended. "

True passion for what they do
May 2014 • Couples
We had planned to visit a farm while visiting Sicily, and selected Azienda Montalbano as a perfect stop between Marsala and Agrigento. We were received by the proprietor, Antonino Montalbano, who gave us an extensive tour of the various tracts of land operated by his family. The Azienda grows grapes, olives, citrus, vegetables, etc., and elaborates wine, olive oil, jams and pates, most of their products are certified as organic. Following the visit, we were treated to a copious lunch where we tested a wide variety of delicious products and a menu specially prepared for the occasion. The passion and enthusiasm was palpable in everything that they did for us. We enjoyed the sites, history and culture of Sicily, but we loved our visit to the Azienda and the warm reception by Antonino and his family.

Exceptional taste experiences
Sep 2013 • Couples
We stumbled upon this little shop during our grocery shopping in Menfi, and went in to see if there was anything interesting. Well, there certainly is! The shopkeeper was very friendly and informative, and especially helpful, giving us tastes of several antipasto patés, as well as citrus jams that were out of this world. If you're interested in organic foods, this is the place to go.
We were also very impressed by the intelligent friendliness of the owners, it was a real pleasure to chat with them: they also gave us the name of a very good local restaurant as well as a butcher shop nearby.
The atmosphere was very informal, no attempt to present an elegant interior, but that didn't really bother us.
We'll certainly be going back, along with friends.
Oh yes, the prices were very reasonable as well.
