The Story

With the super local variety Monica we are in the heart of the tradition of our area as well as Nuragus.
The name Monica comes after the monk cultivation (the monks grapes, uva dei monaci, then uva monaca and then monica). They grew this varietal around their monasteries. Unfortunately there are no studies on the vine as there’s only few producers growing Monica … but we know the monks were from France and so we think of some grape adapted to our area in the past centuries.

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
