Siddùra – A Journey Through the Vineyards of Sardinia

Siddùra is the ruby-red jewel in Gallura’s winemaking crown. Cagnulari is relatively unknown even to many Sardinians, and in recent years its value has been re-evaluated, producing one of the island’s most delicious specialities. Situated near the medieval town of Luogosanto at Siddùra the art of winemaking is as old as the ancient people who first inhabited the lands of Sardinia.
