The Marsala DOC wine road

The road for a wine which forms part of Sicily's history and that of European gastronomy: Marsala wine is a sweet wine which goes well with tea biscuits. It was invented almost by chance in Marsala in 1773 by an Englishman by the name of John Woodhouse who made the fortunes of the great families of Italian viniculture, above all that of Florio: http://www.marsaladoc.it/
