Italian Food, Wine & Travel of Sicily with #ItalianFWT

It's our 6th Italian Food, Wine & Travel bloggers event (#ItalianFWT) and this month we're featuring the island of Sicily.  I traveled to Sicily myself many years ago, but unfortunately at that time wasn't much into wine as much as I am now and would love the opportunity to go back and thoroughly explore the cuisine and wines, especially those unique around the Mt. Etna area.  Our group this month is excited to share with you all our experiences that make this region unique.

Sicily is the largest island within Italy surrounded by many other islands including the Aeolian Islands.  There are many cultural influences from it's many invasions throughout time, specifically of the Greeks and Arabs.  It's landscapes are diverse containing one of the tallest and most active volcano in Europe, Mt. Etna.  The land is rich in agriculture and has led Sicily to become one of the largest producers of wine within Italy along with Puglia and the Veneto.  As with any other region in Italy, Sicily has its own unique cuisine as well.  All of these exciting elements will be discovered and shared with you through our bloggers group this week.
