Sicily, with its warm temperatures, hilly terrain, sea breezes and rich soil, is the largest island in the Mediterranean, and the largest region of Italy. The Nebrodi and Madonie mountain ranges are the last offshoots of the Italian continental Apennines; all around there are hills that end where the sea begins. Your eyes see only the yellow of the crops, the green of the vineyards and the deep azure of the sea.

With such perfect conditions, it should come as little surprise that the country has more area under vine than any other major winemaking region in Italy - and produces more wine per year than Australia, New Zealand and Hungary combined. It boasts amazing indigenous varietals such as Nero d’Avola, Grillo and Inzolia, to name only a few.
