Sardinia ’14

When you think of Sardinia, things that immediately come to mind are beautiful beaches, crystal-clear waters, Porto Cervo, billionaires and their expensive yachts, and often overpriced hotels. Sardinian wine isn’t something you would easily find at your local wine merchant, let alone on a supermarket shelf. The reason being the lion’s share of production is consumed locally, and with Sicily offering affordable wines in much larger quantities, Sardinian wines are regrettably (or luckily? 😉 ) overlooked.

With a number of Spanish and indigenous Italian varieties flourishing here, the island has a number of IGT and DOC zones, and with Vermentino di Gallura, the first and so far the only DOCG appellation.

Being based in the North-West of the island for only one week holiday I couldn’t miss the opportunity to visit a local winery. I have selected Vigne Surrau, a producer located to the North-East of the island, less than 30 minutes’ drive from Porto Cervo.

Enjoy browsing the gallery!
