We’ve never been to wine tasting, but are definitly going again after this experience! Anna Maria was really good at explaining (in english) all about the wines, and also had a history introduction about Sardinia! The wines and the scenery are absolutely worth a visit.

Irene and Gabriele are very welcoming hosts. We learnt how to make a variety of different pasta and then they cooked up a delicious meal for us with produce from their garden. Grazie mille.

Fantastic experience. Very enjoyable and easy to follow along. Irene is very friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious and it was the highlight of our trip. Highly recommend!
