TALES FROM THE WINERY

A "wedding between East and West because of the two ancient vines Bovale and Syrah (or Shiraz)

and we liked the idea or Thesys (theory) of the western grape, Bovale, in Sardinia and the Eastern from the Middle east... combined with the theory of Atlantis-Sardinia. Departing and landing ports...the ancient city of Tiro in the middle east and the western Tiro in our island.

...is only a legend but so fascinating, as well as the coastal border south west of Sardinia, our sea, designed on the label...

 

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.

MARIO PALA COLLEZIONI

Pure terroir plus Pala family recipe or interpretation this are the wines in the Mario Pala Collezioni range. From Stellato to Cannonau Riserva, at the top in terms of quality and terroir, to Thesys and Siray, modern ways to respect the varietal and the soil type. From Chiaro di Stelle know as one of the best roses in Italy to the native Essentija.

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.
