TALES FROM THE WINERY

For a long time the idea of producing a rosé only as a complement of the range we did not like.
presumptuously ... we wanted to make a rosé that was able to revive the old tradition of Sardinian rosé, with an eye to modernity, Chiaro di Stelle, starlight in Italian. The rosé that has enthralled even France (winner of Rosé du Monde. Bordeaux)

The Crus

Entemari, S'Arai, Assoluto, these are the grand crus from the Pala family and for the people able to wait and to keep them for a longo time in the cellar.

they are the resume of more than sixty five years of our history and of our family in the wine production. Obtained from the most important and indigenous grape varieties of Sardinia these are wines of exceptional quality produced only in perfect harvest/vintage and in a very limited quantity.

I FIORI

Sardinia is inside of every single I Fiori bottle of wine. I Fiori, the flowers is the meaning because every single varietal is one of the most important of the Island and is one of the most famous DOCs of Sardinia: Monica, Nuragus, Vermentino and Cannonau are their names, these are all flowers. The same flowers that che Mario Pala dedicates to his family. Nuragus for his daughter Elisabetta, Cannonau for the son Massimiliano, Monica is for the daughter Maria Antonietta and the Vermentino for Rita, Mario's wife.

SILENZI

Visiting the vineyards in our area means very often find themselves alone with the nature and in a land where the silence (Silenzio) is broken only by the sound of the wind or the singing of birds. These are the silences (Silenzi) of this land and these vineyards from where this three great wines of undisputed quality are made.
