October 2016 – Sicily Vineyards, Spooky Folklore, Dining With Locals

Exploring the Vineyards of Noto Sicily
Sea breezes, limestone soil, Nero d’Avola grapes and Sicilian hospitality are some of the elements that combine to make the wineries around Noto in southeastern Sicily must-visits. Stay for a wine tasting or enjoy several nights in your very own vineyard casa.
