Black grapes from the region in Sicily have long been famous for their delicious wines. The Sicilian culture has been known for its sensuality, like many Italian regions.  Venus the Goddess of Love was born on the island of Sicily, known as one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean. African and Persian Empires longed to be associated with this island for many reasons. There are also areas in Spain famous for black grapes and wine production. A book called the Spirituality of Wine denotes many sensual pleasures of wine that may help you understand this connection.
