Once famous for sweet and fortified wines like Marsala, modern Sicily is surely one of Europe's most fascinating and dynamic wine regions. Enjoying consistent sunshine, low rainfall and an abundance of coastal breezes, the island is ideal for grape growing. The mineral-rich soils of Mount Etna in the east and the higher altitude vineyards also offer exciting opportunities for experimentation and innovation with traditional and 'international' grape varieties alike.
Some of the island's top wineries are also some of Italy's finest - Planeta, Frank Cornelissen, Tenuta dell Terre Nere, COS and Passopisciaro all offer terror-focused wines that showcase the very best that Sicily has to offer. See below for our selection - Saluti!
