Discover the Jewel of the Mediterranean: Luxury, Culture, and Culinary Wonders Await in Sardinia

EXPLORE ALL OUR WINE TOURS IN ITALY

Overview of Sardinia Wine Tour

Sardinia is the ultimate luxury destination in Italy, offering spectacular coastline, pristine countryside, fascinating history, and fantastic food and wine. The island is essentially the Bora Bora of Europe with its white-sand beaches, mesmerizing, turquoise, crystal clear waters, pink flamingos, and beautiful, rugged rock formations. Scented with rosemary, myrtle, and juniper, Sardinia (Sardegna, in Italian) is the second biggest in the Mediterranean, after Sicily. There are 2,000 kilometers of beaches and coastline, and the contrasts here are extraordinary. In the Costa Smeralda, in the northeast, you will find a glitzy jet set of celebrities, athletes and models, ultra-luxury villas, and outrageous billionaire yachts. Yet only a short drive into the interior of the island, you will find shepherds and their sheep, artisan cheesemakers (making prized Pecorino), and authentic, timeless villages.

Thanks to Sardinia’s rich Bronze Age and its history of invasions and settlers, being located at a crossroads of maritime trade routes (Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Pisans and Genovese, Aragonese and Catalan, Austrians and finally “Italians” when Italy was unified), there is the most marvelous, generous sprinkling of beautiful architecture throughout the island. The heritage is astounding, and much of it Unesco protected. There are 2,000 Neolithic fairy houses (mysterious tombs), 7,000 Nuraghe (megalithic monuments), Romanesque churches, Spanish castles and watchtowers, ancient dolmens, and one of the finest surviving Roman amphitheaters in Italy.

Wine lovers will discover a treasure trove of exciting grape varietals and wine styles here. The most famous noble red grape is Cannonau, called Grenache in France and Garnacha in Spain. It was initially believed that the grape had been brought from Aragon, Spain to Sardinia in the 14th century when they conquered the island. However, research now suggests the grape may be Sardinian in origin. Vermentino is the most traditional white varietal grown, and you can taste terrific, rich, and perfumed examples of this usually zippy grape in the Vermentino di Gallura DOCG appellation. Malvasia di Bosa passito is a nectar-like dessert wine made with dried Malvasia di Sardegna grapes, perfect with almonds and cheese. On this intriguing itinerary, you will taste all three of these wines and many more!

Your journey begins in the west of the island in Alghero and concludes in the east in Olbia. Over an exceptional, memorable week, you will visit an array of specially selected wine cellars, enjoying private VIP tours and tastings of premium wines. Incredibly special meals will be organized for you, including private wine estate lunches, right in the vines; a sunset dinner on a private yacht; a homey grandma’s style garden kitchen; and a farewell dinner in one of the most chic and atmospheric coastal lounge restaurants overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. Apart from wining and dining, you’ll enjoy evocative scenery, charming small towns, and even a few fascinating archaeological wonders. You will be based in two lovely accommodations- a private, country suite on a wine estate and a private villa on a luxury resort complex, with your private pool and sea views. This trip offers a balance of sightseeing, intimate food and wine experiences, relaxation and luxury and is a wonderful idea for a special milestone.
