A wine lover's Paradise
The island has become one of the most important wine regions in Italy for the great diversity of its land, indigenous grape varietals and microclimates. It was believed that winemaking developed in Sicily with the arrival of the Greeks around the 8th century B.C. The recent discovery of terracotta jars in a cave on Mount Kronio dating back 6000 years ago is of great importance, considering that the Southern Anatolia and Transcaucasian region were traditionally believed to be the cradle of grape domestication and early viticulture.
These Copper Age jars establish a completely new, much older, timeline for the birth of wine in Europe and the Mediterranean, dating back way before ancient Greek or Roman Bacchanals, making Sicily the oldest wine producing region in Italy. Today it's Italy's largest and, probably, the best! Blessed with consistently bright sunshine and reliably moderate rainfall, Sicily's Mediterranean climate is ideally suited to the production of some of the finest wines.
