A photo essay from the island of Sicily

Sicily is a big island, the biggest in the Mediterranean. It is also one of Italy’s biggest wine regions. It is an island where you can find everything from sandy beaches, tiny wind swept islands, high mountains and of course volcanoes, vast fruit plantations and olive groves etc. It offers a great variety of excellent Sicilian wines and has its very own gastronomy. Much of Sicilian food culture has been influenced by many other of the countries around the Mediterranean.

On this page you can find a selection of our photography from Sicily, a photo essay on Sicilian pleasures. Enjoy the pictures!

Read more on Sicily, the wine, the food, the olive oil and the region, in this article by Britt on BKWine Magazine: Sicily seduces, an island of wine, olives, food and sunshine in the Mediterranean.
