Indigenous grape varieties of Sardinia

Vermentino di Sardegna

Sardinia boasts a rich winemaking tradition, with indigenous grape varieties that express the unique character of the territory. Among the main indigenous Sardinian grape varieties are:

  • Cannonau, which produces robust and structured red wines characterized by hints of ripe fruit and spices.
  • Vermentino, on the other hand, is a white grape variety that gives life to fresh and aromatic wines with notes of citrus and white flowers.
  • Nuragus is another typical white grape variety of Sardinia, which yields dry and light wines, ideal for pairing with fish and seafood dishes.
  • Monica is a red grape variety that produces elegant and well-structured wines with aromas of red fruit and spicy notes.

The main characteristics of the Sardinian terroir

The Sardinian terroir presents a series of unique characteristics that influence the island’s wine production.

The best wineries in Sardinia leverage the diverse natural qualities of the territory to produce wines of excellent quality that reflect the peculiarities of Sardinian tradition.

The Mediterranean climate, constant ventilation, and proximity to the sea are undoubtedly the features that most influence the island’s winemaking.

These factors promote optimal grape ripening, good ventilation of the vineyards, and increased freshness of the wines. Moreover, the great variety of soils and pronounced biodiversity confer remarkable complexity to the products.

Cantina Mesa

cantina mesa

Cantina Mesa was founded in 2004 thanks to an intuition by the famous advertising executive Gavino Sanna.

The name, which means “table” in Spanish, perfectly represents the company’s mission: a place of gathering, simplicity, and love for a marvelous land, Sardinia.

The winery is located in the Sulcis Iglesiente area, surrounded by valleys characterized by sandy soils, from which wines with great character and brightness are born.

The candid, unusual, and minimalist structure is enveloped by gentle hilly slopes and stands out amidst the greenery of the Mediterranean maquis. It is an extremely evocative place where the story of a generous land, like a mother, that offers everything she has is told.

Thanks to Smart Tasting, you can enjoy Cantina Mesa wines comfortably from your own home without giving up the expert guidance of the producer!
