More information on Sardinia
The beautiful island of Sardinia finds itself in the Mediterranean, west of Italy’s mainland. With its approximately 2000 kilometers of coastline, sandy white beaches and a hinterland rich in hiking trails, Sardinia is the perfect destination for wine lovers who want to combine wine tastings and winery visits with hikes in breathtaking landscapes and a holiday in one of Italy’s most renowned sea destinations.
Your wine tastings in Sardinia will teach you how the wine they produce today in this region is the outcome of the influence of different populations. Thanks to its strategic position, Sardinia was influenced over time by many populations that crossed its lands, starting from the Romans, to the Arabs, the Genoese, and finally the Piedmontese, to name a few. Sardinia’s viticulture was influenced too by the different traditions and cultures, and many of what are now considered local vines were brought to the island by these populations over the centuries. In more recent times, Sardinia’s winemakers were able to improve the quality of their production to obtain elegant red wines and crisp white wines such as the well-known Vermentino di Gallura, the only DOCG of the island. In addition, the island boasts 19 DOC and 15 IGT wines.
