Sardinian Wines. This private tour will let you discover the heart of the wine-making in Sardinia. The winery is located at just half-an-hour distance from Cagliari and 1h30m from Villasimius, Costa Rei, Pula Chia, and other nearby resorts.
Sardinia has a long and deep history in the the wine production which remained almost unknown outside the island for centuries. The productions were very local and probably not very consistent in quality and tastes along the years.
Starting from the 70’s and 80’s, and due to the contribution of a group of the finest Italian oenologist lead by Giacomo Tachis, some of the best wine-makers of the island started an intense process of renovation of their products. The upgrade process included the reintroduction of forgotten and unused local grapes, intense analysis of the soil composition and the upgrades of fermentation and ageing of the wines. This intense process brought to life the best wines of the region, and in the top chart of all the country, such as the red Carignano, the white Vermentino and the award-winning and excellent Turriga.
This private tour will let you discover the magic of these wines with the finest wine tasting experience you can have in Sardinia, at one of the best wineries of the island.
