Sardinia (Sardegna) is a vast island off the west coast of Italy in the Mediterranean. Its open position has made it prone to invasion and subsequent settlement by many cultures through the centuries, with multicultural influences on its grapes and vineyard practices as a result. The first known inhabitants were an ancient tribe called the Nuraghi, who lived there some time around 1500 BC and built conical stone structures throughout the island, some 700 of which still exist. The Nuraghi were known to trade with the Phoenicians, but this alignment brought about an invasion from the Carthaginians who were fighting with Greece at the time. The Romans were next, then the Spanish, Visigoths, Byzantines, back to Spain, Austrians, French (Savoy), then finally in the 1800s it came into Italian hands and stayed there. 
Despite its proximity to mainland Italy, perhaps due to settlement from so many outside cultures over the years, almost none of the more common Italian grapes such as Read more »

  • Argiolas Costamolino 2010


    Pretty, straw color. Fruity/floral nose. Very refreshing on the palate. Seems to be some slight effervescence. Some citrus flavor. Nice tartness. Some minerally bitterness on the back of the palate. US$12.99 at the Wine Club in Santa Ana. Read More

  • Nuraghe Crabioni Vermentino di Sardegna 2011


    Earth and mineral on the nose, with notes of dried brush and fennel framing bright lemon-driven aromas.

That richness carries onto the finish, which shows a hint of ripe tropical fruit paired ... Read More

  • Il Nuraghe Semidano Mogoro Anastasia 2008


    Semidano is an autochthonous sardeginan vine, which is due to the low yield almost no longer grown. It is dry, fruity and very tasty. It matures over a year. A perfect wine for seafood and fish. Serve chilled 8-10°C. Read More
