#SicilianWine infographic project

#SicilianWine is my original project that shares the main available information on Sicilian indigenous grape varieties in a simple, intuitive form. All information is delivered through infographics and a plain, concise language to reach the maximum audience possible.

This is a work in progress: if you don't find the grape variety you are looking for, please come back and check for updates in the next coming weeks.


#SicilianWine refers to official historical and scientific data published by REGIONE SICILIANA - Assessorato Regionale dell’Agricoltura, dello Sviluppo Rurale e della Pesca Mediterranea. Original information is available in the book “Identità e ricchezza del Vigneto Sicilia” edited by Giacomo Ansaldi, Dario Cartabellotta, Vito Falco, Francesco Gagliano and Attilio Scienza, presented at EXPO 2015 - Cluster Bio-Mediterraneo. 
The book is available for download (Italian only).
