More than a century ago, two Piedmontese adventurers, Mr. Sella, an engineer, and Mr. Mosca, a lawyer, looked at the uncultivated land with new eyes. They fell in love and created Sella & Mosca. In 1899, the recovery of this land started and gave way to the beauty of the vines, aromas and colours of the grapes. Decades of work to free the soil from the rocks and give it new life.
Alghero is an immense estate, one of the biggest in Europe. The land is unique - it is history and nature coming together as one, as if that is how it always was. It is in berchiddeddu, gallura: tenacious vermentino between granite and mediterranean scrub. It is in giba, sulcis: antique carignano between sand and sea. It is in sardegna, a land that cannot be confused with any other, where history and nature come together as one, as if that is how it always was.
In the heart of the estate, there is the site for rootstock grafting and forcing, the wineries, workers' housing, an elementary school and a chapel.
