Instead of Hurricane Sandy

Get your mind off of Hurricane Sandy by escaping to one of these destinations

Since I started off with a simple island, I will continue the theme. Sicily would be lovely right now. Daytime temperatures remain in the 70s with plenty of sun. Evenings this time of year can get chilly with temperatures drifting down into the mid 40s. At times like this though, one might value Sicily’s can-do attitude and camaraderie even more than warm evenings.

Unlike Molokai, Sicily has plenty of wine and it is mostly delicious. You’ll be hearing much more about the reds wines of Mount Etna over the coming years. People will be comparing them to great Pinot Noir, which is a reasonably fair comparison, but there are many other great wines coming from Sicily as well. These include the Frappato wines and Cerasuolo di Vittoria wines that seem to be bottle expressions of Sicilian sunshine.
