Sicily is known for its stunning architecture, amazing views, and delicious food, but it is also Italy’s largest wine producer. We believe that every wine enthusiast should put Sicily on the top of their list of places to take a wine tour, and here’s why!
A Complete Experience
A wine tour isn’t complete without experiencing the beautiful vineyards where the grapes are grown. But why stop at just the views of the vineyards while tasting the delicious wine? On a Sicily wine tour, you can sip wine and enjoy gourmet food with Mount Etna and other iconic sights in the background. Since Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean, there is no shortage of breathtaking views, from the sea to the countryside.
Great Wine Variety
Of course, the main draw of wine tours is the tasting part! If the wine isn’t any good, then what’s the point? But if you’re in Sicily, you don’t need to worry about the quality. Grapes have been grown and used for wine on the island for thousands of years, and they really know what they’re doing.
Many Sicilian grapes are used for dessert wine, which uses a higher concentration of grapes and is consumed in smaller quantities. Sicily is well-known for its dessert wines, including the world-famous Marsala.
Dessert wines account for a large percentage of the wine production on the island, but high-quality white and red wines are also made by both small and large producers. The best-known wines made on the island include Corvo, Regaleali, and Rapitalà.
Wine has been the backbone of Sicily since the second millennium BC. The production of wine has endured the Roman Empire’s takeover of the island and various other invasions and wars. When you take a wine tour in Sicily, you will be able to feel the history and appreciate the tenacity of the wine still produced for wine lovers today.
