PALA, a Family in Serdiana since 1950

from his father vineyards Salvatore Pala in 1950 started with his first harvest, from his father Salvatore, Mario Pala continued the family tradition with his sons Massimiliano and Elisabetta. The history behind Pala is just as simply and complicated as is passing passion and tradition from father to son.

Pala, a wine family since 1950

The Azienda Agricola Pala (or Pala estate) was founded in Sardinia, Italy, in 1950 with the first harvest by Salvatore Pala

Mario Pala son of Salvatore, is now the third generation of the family taking care of the vines of his family with the help of his wife Rita and the fourth generation of the family represented by his sons Massimiliano, Elisabetta and Mariantonietta.
From father to son since 1950 there’s the most important ingredients that the Pala family has always added to terroir, tradition, respect fro the environment: the passion to make wines that are able to express the family character and the terroir of this extraordinary island.
In history, PALA

Tales from Sardinia, Terroir, Culture, tales from the Pala Family

The story of the Pala family is also the history of the wine in Sardinia. The history of the island with its, its vineyards, its ancient people…
Sardinia is one of the oldest emerged lands in the Mediterranean area… geographically is part of the French massif, while the rest of the Italian peninsula belongs to the African bloc….

Eratosthenes was used to describe Sardinia as the world’s largest island and this is the impression that you get circumnavigating Sardinia as its coasts are jagged. Yet Sardinia is really a micro continent. A land where the farthest point from the sea is only sixty miles and where you can find a concentration of stunning landscapes and a nature of its own. Snowy mountains. The longest canyon in Europe to the only desert of the continent, fertile plains and limestone hills overlooking the sea as the ones where you will see Pala’s vineyards

Pala's family Vineyards

Pala vineyards are divided in eight different single ones. Some of them are really close to the cellar, some other one are far. Different terroirs, the best exposure, and the best soil type are adapted to the different grape varieties. Form the town of Serdiana, where Pala has its cellar and where the limestone in a rolling hill area is common to the municipalities of Ussana and Senorbì with again limeston and marnes. The farest ones are in the municipalities of Uras, Terralba and San Nicolò d’Arcidano in the central western coast of the island, this vineyards are planted in white sands.
