However what keeps the locals and holiday maker's refreshed after a long day of sightseeing and festivities is the region's show-stopping varietal Vermentino di Gallura DOCG which is quickly becoming one our most requested white whites in our entire store! And in terms of quality and value for money its hard to look past one of the top producer's of Vermentino in the World 'Vigne Surrau' who have recently released their 2022 edition which is very aromatic; with peach blossoms, lemon-zest, yellow apple and citrus aromas.

''It's silky and round in feel, resonating on inner florals, minerals and hints of savory spice.'' Eric Guido
''Aromas of citrus and tropical fruit notes and white pepper. On the palate there are crisp fruit and raciness vibrating across the tongue, with a harmonious finish.'' Falstaff Wine Guide Austria
''Chiselled aromas and flavours of white stone fruit and minerals. Closes long with zingy acidity. A very pretty, refreshing wine of sneaky concentration.'' Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media
