The Oddbins Take

Positioned smack in the middle of a very useful sea, Sicily has long been subject to attack and plunder by adventurers, rogues and other businessmen intent on using the island to strategic advantage. It's little wonder locals quickly came up with fortified structures - "Baglio" - into which they could 'up sticks' and run when things got a little hairy.


Naturally light-hearted, the peasants and traders of Marsale saw the repeated raids as a game of cat and mouse, or - more accurately translated from the dialect, 'cat and rat'. It is in self-deprecating delight they named their favourite white grape after the shenanigans! Catarratto. As affable and cheerful as they, but much easier to approach.
