Make them an offer they can't refuse... A bottle of Sicilian wine! Long thought of as producer of bulk grapes for cheap wine, Sicily is coming in to its own for the production of premium wines. Regions like Mt. Etna are the darling of terroir conscious sommeliers, and native grape varieties like Nero D'Avola, Nero Mascalese, Grillo, and Carricante are gaining well deserved recognition for an island that has been producing wines for several thousand years!
