Sicily is a land rich in history, art and culture
Sicily is the largest Italian region, with hues of evocative landscapes that ranges from undulating hills rolling down to the sea, to green sunny plains of the hinterland.
Placed in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, it was once called Trinacria (from Greek tries, three and Akra, capes, for its almost triangular shape), then Sicania and finally SIKELIA (Σικελία in Greek). Its geographical position has historically made it a laboratory of cultures: Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals and Goths, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Swabians, Angevins and Bourbons with theirs dominions left a huge cultural and historical patrimony.
Its history was rich and troubled: made of splendor and glory, but also conflicts and decadence. A land that has lived for centuries as a colony of the richest and most powerful civilizations of the Mediterranean, following their fortunes in alternating phases.
Land of tradition and myths Sicily is an island of a long grape growing tradition. A legend tells that the first vine was planted by Bacchus in Sicily and here, for the first time, grape was transformed into wine. Its variety of soils and its favorable climate allows the production of excellent grapes with unique and incomparable characteristics. A thousand-year history, the history of Sicilian oenology, that culminates with the introduction of the single certification in 2012, the DOC Sicilia, which seals the high prestige of Sicilian wine in the world.
