the best winery are on the slop of Mount Enta in the Tenuta San Michele products a famous wine called Murgo and as far as I know they have rooms in the winery.Could be in idea or while you are staying in Taormina you can do a daily excursion to Etna and a stop to the tenuta san Michele

Sicilyforever - do you have any recommendations for wineries in the Trapani-Marsala area that make Marsala that can be visited without a car?

Hi
It would be better have a car.
One very well known winery is cantine florio as well have a look at this website

It's better to have a car also because without it you will miss the salt route or via del sale

The establishment seems to be about 1.5 km from the train station in Marsala.

Thanks for the links. One and a half kms I can walk - I'm traveling solo and no longer drive stick, so I really don't want to rent a car. (Sorry for the hijack, marybeth - my thread dropped out of sight.)
