Pantelleria Island is a timeless place, an ancient land where the goddess of love Ishtar was worshipped. The wine estate Coste Ghirlanda, in combination with Sikelia Luxury Retreat, pays homage to this beautiful destination by offering unique and unforgettable events in the wonderous nature of this mystical natural stage. Weddings here evoke special emotions tied to the very foundations of the islands’ romantic past. A wedding in Pantelleria typically is hosted over several days and includes several events to entertain guests.
The wine estate Coste Ghirlanda, in combination with Sikelia Luxury Retreat, is unparalleled. Two very different locations united by breathtaking nature and 5-star service. Here is a sample of what you can expect:
Enjoy a cozy first evening of welcome cocktails and Sicilian appetizers in Sikelia’s palm grove. Toast with the wines produced at Coste Ghirlanda. Their unique hints and notes will nourish your soul. Feel the slow drum of the island’s natural rhythm. Dance on the white roofs of our dammusi, watching the African sunset.
The following day is the “big day”. The wedding ceremony characterized by a more formal, ceremonial dinner reception and live music entertainment in Coste Ghirlanda, the glorious wine estate. The “Imperial table” set under a starlight sky. Candles glowing. Glasses raised in toasts. Live music in the vineyards. What could be more magical? Pantelleria offers unique options for both Catholic ceremonies and civil ceremonies. If you wish to have a civil ceremony, celebrate either at Coste Ghirlanda or many other beautiful locations to choose from around the island.
The following day entertain your guests with a gourmet picnic set at Lake “Mirror of Venus” or perhaps a sunset boat tour on the private traditional boat, the “Esperanza”.
The events team is able to transform the spaces, natural and manmade. Creating event perfection. All you need to enjoy a flawless experience. Wedding/event planner, florals, entertainment, gourmet food & wines. Whatever you need or imagine, it is yours. Right here in Pantelleria, at Coste Ghirlanda.
