A land surrounded by sea, Sicily has been conquered, pillaged and settled time and time again.
It is fed by constant sunshine and grown on some of the most fertile soils on the planet, the resulting wines brim with life. Grapes are grown all over the island, across an incredibly varied range of climates and aspects. From the tense, mineral whites and red of Mount Etna, to the juicy-deep blends of Vittoria and its surrounds. There are muscular, saline wines from its west coast around Marsala and aromatic dry and sweet bottlings found on the offshore island of Pantelleria.
