The largest island in the Mediterranean Sea with a rich and diverse culture since the Greeks arrived on this island almost four millennia ago; Sicilia is one place in which you will discover traces of the Greek, Arab, Roman, Norman, Egyptian, Spanish and other ancient civilizations.
The rocky and volcanic soil found in Sicilia is ideal for grape growing, complemented with the hilly terrain and the mild Mediterranean climate. Sicilia is most famous for its sweet wine, perhaps owing to their dessert culture. Unlike the rest of Italy, Sicilia produces more white wine than red.
Sicilia is best known for its fortified wine Marsala that is made from the native Grillo, Cararratto or Inzolia grapes. For the reds, it will definitely be the Nero d’Avola.
If you are a dessert or seafood lover, chances are, you will enjoy the company of a Sicilian wine with your meal.
