Marsala
The Essential
The name alone speaks volumes! Marsala is first and foremost a wine, a wine whose story begins "Once upon a time there was an English merchant..." and which ends with a town whose name is known the world over. Today, marsala flows freely in the numerous "enoteche" of this endearing and welcoming city. Countless remains of strongholds and fortifications remind the visitor of the town's former military vocation.
