For many centuries, Sicilian wines were considered second-class products, on the brink of extinction. Thanks to the commitment of local winegrowers and the ambition to respond more and more to market demands, their value has begun to grow exponentially over the years.
Sicilian wine production represents one of the most important resources for the Island of the Sun: today it holds a prominent place among Italian wines in terms of both quantity and quality. The initial desire to produce full-bodied, alcoholic wines has been put aside in favour of young, fresh Sicilian wines made from indigenous grape varieties. Among the best Sicilian white wines are those made from Grillo, Carricante and Catarratto grapes, ranging from typical Sicilian wines to liqueur wines, products that are known and exported to all the foreign markets most inclined to wine culture.
Not to be outdone are Sicilian red wines, authentic pearls that preserve all the tradition and goodness of a land of extraordinary strength. Sicilian red wines are the ideal choice for anyone wishing to immerse themselves in such a living reality, in a region where wine production is considered a way of life. Among the best grape varieties is Nero d'Avola, a typical Sicilian wine, the best known internationally, along with Frappato and Nerello. These have been joined by other international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Chardonnay, which have considerably increased the quality level of Sicilian labels.
