Sicilia

Sicily is the largest and one of the most culturally enriched islands in the Mediterranean, benefiting from its history as a key strategic trade route. Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs,Normans and Spanish are some of those who have colonised Sicily and who have influenced the local cuisine and the wine production. In particular, it was thanks to the Greeks and later the Romans that the grape cultivation and the wine making techniques have strongly developed on the island. Sicily

Although the production of DPO wines is still small in Sicily, the wine industry has recently switched from quantity to quality. Sicily is not synonymous with bulk wine production anymore but instead Sicilian producers are investing in local varieties and advanced wine making techniques. While in certain areas of the world a good vintage is a miracle, in Sicily, which is considered as “the California of Italy”, producers can make great wine every year.

The eastern-southern cost of the island is the land of Nero d'Avola (red) and Moscato Bianco (white) which dominate the provinces of Siracusa and Ragusa. On the opposite coast, on the western side of Sicily, the provinces of Palermo and Trapani, are known for the production of several IGTs and a few number of DOCs made of indigenous and international grape varieties; the red Nero d'Avola and Syrah and the white Grillo, Ansonica, Catarratto, Grecanico and Chardonnay.

Among the small areas of wine production, the area of Mount Etna is definitely worth a mention. On the slopes of the volcano, the red indigenous varieties Nerello Capuccio and Nerello Mascalese and the white Carricante grow on black lava soil facing extreme environmental condition. The outcomes are elegant red wines and unique smoky and mineral whites. The slopes of the volcano is also the land where a few pistachio trees give elite quality pistachios, "Etna’s green gold", which was recently recognised by the EU as a DPO production.
