The fragrance, the wind, the silence, the intensity of the land and the force of the sea all guide you here, even blindfolded. Sardinia is unique as is its wines. Both with a character which feeds on the sun and honesty of these places. Here, in Alghero, more than a century ago, two adventurous piedmontese, the engineer Mr. Sella and the lawyer Mr. Mosca, looked at the wild nature with fresh eyes. They fell in love and all together they founded Sella&Mosca, pure poetry in sight and taste.
Vines, oleanders, maritime pines but also palms, eucalyptuses all the way down there, all the way to the horizon. 650 hectare of mediterranean scrub and vineyards, both respectful of each other’s diversity and character.
