The Sicilyan Wines

This is the story!

Diario del Vino


Sicilia has more vineyards than any other region in Italy; it also grows more grapes. Granted, the vast majority of those vineyards raise grapes for marsala, the sweet and dry fortified wine that’s produced in the seaside town of the same name. But in recent years, there’s been a lot of excitement around Sicilia’s regular red and white wines, as producers of bulk wines have started focusing on the quality of their own bottles.


Sicilia is an autonomous region of Italy, and the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. At its widest point, between Messina and Marsala, the island measures 175 miles (280km) east to west, and about one third that distance north to south.
