Dear Italian wine lovers,
The wines of Sicily, much alike wines of Italy, come in great diversity of styles. Donnafugata being a key Sicilian producer is a great go-to producer if you’d like to try quality expressions of the many wine styles Sicily can offer. Just like wines of Italy in general, majority of Sicilian wines are crafted from local grape varieties. To help you decide which styles to go for, this is a quick summary of their styles. 
If you are looking for white wines, specifically…
  1. A refreshing and aromatic apertitif white, go for Anthilia, SurSur or Lighea
  2. A minerally, food-friendly white wine, go for Sul Volcano Etna Bianco
