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 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.
