We travelled to the winery as a group trip from Ireland while holidaying in Sardinia. We had a fantastic couple of hours thanks to our beautiful guide Ali who was very informative and passionate about her job. She went above and beyond explaining the process from start to finish including a tour of the vineyards, The highlight of the day was tasting the wines paired with local cheeses and meats. Thanks again Ali for a wonderful experience from the Dublin gang.

Great half day wine tour. Our guide, Franco, drove us around Cagliari, showing us some of the beautiful sites before driving us into the hills to a small boutique winery. We received a short but nice tour of the winemaking facilities and the vineyard. We enjoyed a wine tasting of local varietals, accompanied by a bounty of local bread, meats, cheeses, olives, etc. We returned to Cagliari after the tasting.

From start to finish the experience was fantastic. Great value for money and Alice our host was super friendly. As my girlfriend Gabi said on the way home, ‘I feel like I’ve made a friend that I’ll never get to see again’! The wines are also of amazing quality. Highly recommend.

What a great experience getting out into the beautiful Sardinian countryside to a small family winery! The wine and food was delicious and definitely a highlight of our trip.
