  • Alghero: Wine and Olive Oil Tasting at a Local Farm

    1. Alghero: Wine and Olive Oil Tasting at a Local Farm

    On arrival, you'll be directed to your table in the tasting room by your guide. Your table will already be set with 5 different glasses and a small tray containing your appetizers to pair with the wines during the guided tasting. Your guide will start by sharing information about the farm history, the local area, and the culture, followed by the guided tasting of each wine. You'll learn about the variety of grapes, perfume, taste, and suggested food pairings for each wine. The experience ends with a proof of a top quality extra-virgin olive oil prepared by traditional cold pressing techniques and served with traditional bread. At the end you'll have the opportunity to purchase some of the products you've tried to take home with you. After the tasting, take a nice walk through the vineyard on your own to take some pictures.

    The farm is close to Alghero (we went by bike from the centre and it took 30 minutes). It really worth it to see a Sardinian style farm and vineyard, olive plantation. The host was incredibly friendly and everything what she said was interesting. The wines are tasteful and uniqe, the cheese and the olive oil also. So if you would like to taste something that is original and really Sardinian than you should visit this farm! I hope we will have the chance to go back.

This was one of the highlights, we had so far. Marvelous place, friendly people, good background information, and certainly really beautiful wines. Not that many, but all handmade. As well as the olive oil. Absolutely delicious. Ideal for homecoming presents and for yourselves to take back home some of the sardegna easy going.

The location is very beautiful. the tasting experience was also really well organised with a good selection and very tasty wines and pairings. I also enjoyed the storytelling of the regions and wines

Very interesting! Our guide was very passionate and really clear with all the explanations!

Super fun and tasty wine tasting. Small, but very nice.
