The vineyards, the scent of the Sardinian land, the sun, and men and women who live for wine-making – some of the hidden ingredients we discover in a glass of wine which we can now sip with a new awareness. Sardinian winemakers have always worked with hardship and passion, aware of being part of a history of wine-making, which started on the island some 3500 years ago. A few kilometres from Cagliari, we take part in a journey that starts among the rows of vineyards, to learn about the different types of grapes, and ends in the cellars, the places that preserve the memory of the wine culture. Wine tasting, always accompanied by simple delicacies of the culinary tradition of Sardinia, becomes a moment to share the feelings and emotions we have just experienced among the vineyards. And we notice how the wine in this cellar has a markedly distinct flavour, partly because we are in the territory and the people who make it and they share it with us.

Deep in the mountains, we find two small towns, part of a living museum where, at its centre, for thousands of years, has stood a prehistoric tower, the nuraghe of Armungia. This town has grown around it, stone by stone, and to visit it feels like going back in time, to relive ancient crafts and new emotions.The scent of the myrtle leads us along a path trailed by miners and peasants, before arriving at the fields and the old mine of Villasalto, the neighbouring town where each family still owns a vineyard and raises goats without a hitch. Some one thousand inhabitants live here, surrounded by mountains where mouflons, foxes and wildcats still roam.We visit places where the past and the present barely meet because time does not seem to ever pass. We open the wooden doors of old houses into flowered courtyards, to find old cellars and kitchens inside, and to sit at the table with men and women who have been waiting to meet us and share food with us.

The Arbus countryside is home to the only black sheep farm in Sardinia, and a visit here is a unique experience. The cheese made on site is delicious because the black sheep, besides being raised free range, graze on fragrant wild herbs that give their milk an exceptional flavour. As we taste the local cheese, we can also smell the sea in the air of the Costa Verde. It is here where a small desert of extraordinary beauty stretches over many kilometres of some of the highest sand dunes in Europe. The beach of Piscinas is also a magical place: the turquoise of the sea merges with the bright colours of the yellow sand.
