In Sicily, we say that that [SP68] is the most ancient wine route in existence.

Characteristics

In Sicily, we say that that [SP68] is the most ancient wine route in existence. These roads were also trade routes, in this case, between Gela and Riposto, Sicilian wine travelled along our SP68. I imagine a time when Forcone road, which goes from Vittoria to Quaglio, was a gathering place where one would find both vineyards and men carrying vessels of wine.
