A Wine Born On a Ship

  • Post category:Discover

He had only added some spirit.

The long journey by ship 🌊 did the rest.

When in 1773 John Woodhouse loaded 50 barrels of good Sicilian wine 🍷 to bring it to England 🇬🇧 he did not know he was about to invent Marsala.

Its name derives from the city 🏢 where this fortunate journey originated and where today are still located 📍 its centenarian cellars.

By mooring at the port of the city you will be able to reach them for a visit and obviously enjoy a taste! 😉
