Sicily makes fantastic wines from native and international grapes and is also known for its outstanding Etna wines. Vines have been grown here for more than 2,500 years. It is quickly becoming Italy’s of-the-moment wine tour-and-food destination. A new generation of creative chefs is revisiting and reworking their grandmothers’ recipes. And a new band of wine merchants is finally realizing the island’s enological potential. Sicily has surely among the Mediterranean’s most prolific farmers with grapevines planted across the whole island. Though Marsala has fallen out of favor with contemporary palates, a tour of its historic cellars offers a fascinating glimpse into the past of Sicilian winemaking.
