In September I had the pleasure of traveling back to Sicily. This time instead of just a few days, I spent a glorious week on the island taking a deep dive into their wine, food, and culture. It was magical. I almost forgot I was working. Sicily is a fascinating place. Independent. Friendly. Diverse. Please take a moment to read my latest contribution to Snooth to learn why now is the time to embrace Sicilian wine.
While in Sicily I spent time discovering the Mt. Etna region. It reminded me of Hawaii; tropical, dark soil, active volcano, paradise. I then traveled across the island to experience a much different culture in Palermo. Its strong Moorish influences in architecture and cuisine felt more like North Africa, than “Italy.”
