The types of grapes grown mainly on the winery’s estates are: Vermentino di Sardegna DOC, Cannonau di Sardegna DOC, Cagnulari Alghero DOC and Monica di Sardegna DOC. They are joined by other prestigious international grape varieties, such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
Vermentino di Sardegna is the most important grape variety for the company and accounts for about 60 per cent of total production. These numbers make Cantina Santa Maria La Palma the largest producer of Vermentino di Sardegna grapes in Italy.
Each vineyard has its own particular position and exposure: elements that, combined with the special composition of the soil, make up a terroir with precise characteristics, which the winery can evaluate in order to choose which type of vine is best suited in that particular context.
The plurality of available soils is thus an important advantage: each specific soil is matched with the most suitable grape variety, ready to give its best in that particular area.
In this way, each member of the winery has been able to choose from the outset the most suitable cultivars for the peculiarities of his or her own farm.
Today we know the history of each of those grapes, and we know how to take care of them so that they continue to produce the best grapes.
Immersed in this unique microclimate, the Cantina has given space to traditional Sardinian grape varieties, soon discovering in Vermentino, Cagnulari and Cannonau the most important indigenous crops for its own production.
Complementary souls of the same land, from which wines are born that are appreciated all over the world for the strong identity of their structure.
