Sunday, the sun is suppose to peak out and we be tasting two wines from Sicily. The Greeks, who settled in southern Italy and Sicily, exported the art of wine-growing to Italy. They were so impressed with the mild Italian climate, which was perfect for producing wines, that they called Italy, Oenotria, or the land of trained vines. Come by Sunday and train your palate.

A cooperative wine from western Sicily with lighter, bright, fresh fruit flavors.
