It is not a real vacation without a local food and wine experience that will leave food lovers, leaving the Riviera del Corallo, more than happy! The sea, vegetables gardens, the vineyards and the olive groves surrounding Alghero are the true source from which the delicious local cuisine draws its raw material, typical flavors and dishes of the mediterranean table.
For this reason, in addition to enjoying the many restaurants and agriturismo in the area, we suggest a visit to the Wine Resort Ledà d’Ittiri which will certainly enrich your holiday pleasure and knowhow. The resort, an old farmhouse, nestled amongst the green of an 18 hectare estate offers, by reservation only, a delightful and interesting Wine & Olive oil tour through their vineyards and olive groves explaining methods of wine and olive oil production. After the tour, in a magnificent setting with vintage crafted furnishings, Annamaria, the owner, will guide you through sample tasting of wines and olive oil accompanied by local bread, cured meats (salami, prosciutto etc) and cheeses.
Even Poderi Parpinello, an estate with 20 hectares of vineyards and an olive plantation, offers lovers of wine and the outdoors a guided tour of its wine cellars and a wine & olive oil tasting spree combined with typical local products, all under the shade of old secular oak trees.
Also worth a visit is the historic winery of Sella & Mosca, the primadonna of Sardinian enology with its many renowned wines, very appreciated by critics and experts of this industry. For decades their wines have been ranked amongst the very best, first of all, thanks to the care taken in the selection of the grapes and, secondly, to the careful wine-making and aging processes. The tour with expert guides, apart from your wine tasting goblet, includes a visit to the historic 1903 wine cellar and after, to the interesting and well preserved Museum of the companies history and business.
