  • Sicily has a jaded reputation. Thanks to the illustrious movie making of Francis Ford Coppola, Americans have believed for decades that Sicily is mafia. Having visited Sicily twice I have yet to meet a Corleone. What I have experienced in Sicily is a carefree atmosphere, affable people, delectable cuisine, and well-crafted wine.Sicily is the lar...

  • Tisdale Moscato NV

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this on a whim because the local grocery store has it at 3/$10 and found it to be quite the happy surprise. I'm a sweet wine drinker and this was sweet, fruity, and light perfect for a hot day! I really like this since some sweet wines can be thick and this is not like that at all. Definitely a go to for me. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet, delicious stand-alone wine that has all the benefits of Chardonnay without dryness. It is the only Moscato I've had so far that did not have a hint of bitterness or muskiness which is oft found with this grape variety. Also plays well with other flavours if you'd like to turn this into a summertime Sangria or add a dash of Schnapps (Blu... Read More
