Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and has a rich vinous history dating back over 2500 years. Its classic Mediterranean climate and soil has resulted in an area not only ideal for winemaking, but also olives and citrus fruit which are key exports.

SICILY WINE REGION
Discover the broad range of Sicilian wines from our diverse selection. For a red wine with fruity undertones, try the Beleda Catarratto from Cantine Rallo. Made with primarily Catarratto grapes, the producers vary the remaining grapes each year, so no two vintages are the same. For a dry and crisp white, Pietradolce produce their Rosato – a summery and vibrant Sicilian wine, with a slight acidic undertone. Browse our range of wines from Sicily to find the next addition to your wine cellar.
PRODUCERS OF THE SICILY WINE REGION
Armit Wines proudly supplies Sicilian wines from two producers: Cantine Rallo and Pietradolce. Cantine Rallo has a long history, established in 1860 to produce both table wine and Marsala. Pietradolce has quite a different history. Opening in 2005, the Pietradolce vineyard is situated on the northern slopes of Mount Etna. The producers’ modern approach to viticulture has seen them labelled as one of the Sicily wine region’s most respected producers in only a very short space of time.
