Sardinia: Surrender to the Charm of Ancient Vines and Unspoiled Shores


Last updated: July 18, 2024


It takes a stony disposition not to be captivated by Sardinia. Even if you cannot surrender to the pristine beaches, hilltop villages, and benign climate, the incredible landscape will take your breath away. It’s an irresistible proposition: miles and miles of unspoiled scenery, expansive bays, azure-blue ocean, lush vegetation, and Instagram shots to die for.

Sardinia sells itself, which probably explains why the tourist board has never invested significant euros to lure discerning visitors from abroad.

However, Sardinia’s charms are not merely skin-deep. Like all self-respecting Mediterranean islands, Sardinia is most definitely in the wine business. Its complex and fascinating cultural heritage has given birth to a wine culture uniquely Sardinian, distinct from mainland Italy. The grapes and soils, the winemaking practices and attitudes, and Sardinian viticulture are all worth exploring, offering an exciting point of difference to the increasingly homogenous and globalized winemaking scene.

Indeed, the island is rich in raw ingredients, and its emphasis on local varieties provides a welcome point of difference in a crowded marketplace. Yet, the island’s wines remain under-exported and under-appreciated.

However, with its wealth of ancient bush vines and unique grapes, Sardinia has the potential to become a truly groundbreaking wine region. This hope could be realized within our lifetime. Sardinia’s authentic and local flavors are set to charm international wine buyers who increasingly seek such qualities. All Sardinia needs to do is reach out and extend its hand.
