Sardinia is the Heart of Genuine Flavours..This is a perfect place for a wine and food tour Sardinia…. a table laid with delicacies before a crystal clear sea or surrounded by green valleys. Tasting the island’s traditional specialities never ceases to be an extraordinary discovery.
Sardinia has an age-old story, told by the archaeological evidence dotted throughout the territory. The tangible signs of the prehistoric island are endless: menhir, dolmen, domus de Janas, sacred wells, tombs of the giants and countless Nuraghe complexes. Enormous stones that have been guarding secrets for four thousand years. Buildings, often intact, of the first civilizations ever to exist in Europe, the only sites of their kind in the world, a patrimony to be discovered and experienced: this is the Stonehenge of the Mediterranean.
Sardinia, the most extraordinary island in the Mediterranean. Its nature
is unspoilt and wild – a combination of the strength and splendour of the sea and the
energy of the rugged mountain scenery. Endless stretches of sparkling white sand and granite promontories overlooking the crystal clear waters with a thousand colours.
And oh, the food…how to express in few words the history of Sardinian food? Food tells the story of a territory: very few places in the world can boast food is as authentic as that in Sardinia.
The quality of the products and the preparation and flavour of the dishes are values that go beyond their tastiness and are the heritage of thousands of years of history
Sardinian cuisine is still very similar to the way it was many centuries ago, while differingbetween the various territories and preparation techniques. Whether on the coast or inland, Sardinia’s delicious specialities, based on simple and genuine ingredients, with strong yet delicate flavours, never fail to amaze you.
You will enjoy authentic products and traditional dishes wherever you go on the Island. Our food and wine tours ensure you go to places others dont.
Sardinia is the home of numerous traditional high quality products: from Pecorino and Fiore Sardo cheeses, Zafferano (saffron) and Bottarga (salted, cured fish roe) to its wines. Family kitchens and restaurants are always at work preparing typical
recipes and specialities.
Natural monuments and unique landscapes, hills and valleys, birdlife parks and reserves, old towns and archaeological sites, knowledge and flavours, artistic handicrafts and food and wine itineraries.
Sardinia is a little universe, you would need an entire life to discover it! Would you like to start knowing this gorgeous Mediterranean jewel? We are waiting for you!
