The Story

Cannonau is one of the oldest vines in Sardinia and now it’s clear it Nuragic origin which is dated 1200 B.C.
To the seed discovered, dated and studied by the Milan University that puts Cannonau ahead of any compared or similar grape, we dedicate the label of this wine… with the shape of a Nuraghe, the most important one.

About Pala

Brand Story

The Pala family began their adventure with wine in 1950 amongst the rolling, vine-covered hills of Serdiana, an idyllic village located in southern Sardinia. With mild winters and warm, dry summers, this part of Italy's second largest island is ideal for grape growing, with the traditional varietals finding a special home here. Under the guidance of Mario Pala as of 1995, the winery continues to be family-owned. The value of tradition and the innovation of modern techniques are both incorporated into the winemaking process at Pala. Pala owns six different vineyard areas with a total of 68 hectares currently under vine. Each vineyard is planted with varietals that are chosen according to the microclimate and soil type of the individual site. Pala practices organic farming in the vineyards
