Appellation Guide: Erice DOC (Sicily, Italy)

Erice DOC is located in the countryside around the town of Erice in Provincia di Trapani on the western side of Sicily.

There is potential for decent wine making here as a combination of hilly altitude and sea breezes suggest there could be a decent amount of aroma in these wines with the right care in the vineyard and cellar.

With few producers in the area and only a handful of good quality wines to speak of Erice is still some distance from wine stardom.

Recommended Producers: Barone di Serramarrocco | Tenute Adragna | Cantina Sociale Ericina | Cantina Sociale Primavera |
