Marsala is a city in the westernmost part of Sicily located next to the scenic Stagnone Lagoon Natural Reserve. Although relatively small, the historic part of the city is dotted with beautiful palazzos, charming squares ideal for a morning coffee and Baroque churches glistening with marble. However, the thing that took this Sicilian town to the world glory is the Marsala wine, popularized by the British traders who brought it back home. This drink has become one of the most popular wines in the British Empire with Admiral Nelson nicknaming Marsala “Victory Wine” after Trafalgar Battle. Its popularity lives on today with about 8 variations of Marsala produced around the Trapani Region and the local wine industry booming with export.
