PALA-SARDINIA (Organic Farming)
When in 1950, his grandfather was collecting the grapes for the first harvest, Mario Pala was just a child. Under his careful guidance, the winery continues to be family owned, where the value of tradition and the innovation of modern techniques are both significant facets of the winemaking process. Pala owns six different vineyards, 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. A deep respect for tradition, special care and devotion to the vines and, finally, the production of great wines, have always been the fundamental philosophy of Pala. This dedication has resulted in wines of great character and elegance that are enjoyed by wine lovers around the world.
Pala practices organic farming in the vineyard and does not use chemical pesticides or fertilizers.
I FIORI--The flower on the label is a Aquilegia Nuragica, one of the two hundred endemic species of Sardinia, a symbol of its diversity. It grows in the Gorroppu canyon(Gennargentu National Park) and there are only ten plants left and protected.
