Sicily

Sicily is part of Italy’s ancient winemaking traditions, yet this island in the Mediterranean Sea is also producing some of the country’s most modern and exciting wines. Wine from Sicily for many years was destined to be sold in bulk or used to make the fortified dessert wine Marsala. Today, quality Sicilian wines are the region’s focus, with an emphasis on grape varieties that thrive in the island’s hot weather and volcanic soils.

Some of Sicily’s best wines, like the rich, red Nero d’Avola and the crisp white Grillo and Inzolia, are made with native grapes. The island’s winemakers are also making fine Sicilian wines with international varieties, including like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
