Off the coast of Italy, 200 km due west of Naples, the second largest island in the Mediterranean rises from the Tyrrhenian Sea. Sardinia, or Sardegna as it is known in its native Italian, has an illustrious past.
Sardinia’s history has made it unique to the mainland, including key differences in language, culture and of course wine production, making Sardinia a distinctive wine region. Sardinian wine production is focused on low production and high quality.
Cantina Santa Maria La Palma continues on this thread of quality over quantity with select methods and techniques to produce the finest grapes, enhancing and protecting the soil.
Sardinia’s best known red grape is Cannonau, a relative of the Granacha grape that originally came from Spain, and its most famous white grape is Vermentino, a dry white variety grown primarily in northern Sardinia that is also of Spanish origin.
