    Capichera, Italy
    Capichera is an Italian wine producing reality that rises in a corner of Sardinia, nestled among the granite rocks of Gallura, in Arzachena, in a unique natural setting of great charm that pours of important and ancient traditions. A family-run company that at the end of the 1970s, following a great intuition, determined an important wine transition not only in Sardinia: it was the first winery to enhance the aging in purity of Vermentino barrels with remarkable success , proposing a model founded on a production of the highest quality and continuous research through a respectful and rigorous viticulture of the identity of the territory, allowing this vine to reveal its great peculiarities and characteristics. Many authoritative critics of the sector still affirm that the history of Capichera is the history of quality Vermentino. The passion, the investment of large resources and the improvement of the production model over the years have defined new and high quality standards, with priority attention to each vineyard and single plot, enhancing its characteristics. This development process has led over time to obtaining innovative and exclusive results not only on Vermentino but also on Carignano and Syrah, giving life to very high profile reds, strongly identifying with the Gallura territory and united by the same production philosophy.

    Hailed for centuries as a Mediterranean vine-growing paradise, multiple cultures over many centuries have ruled the large island of Sardinia. Set in the middle of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Phonoecians, Ancient Rome, and subsequently the Byzantines, Arabs and Catalans have all staked a claim on the island at some point in history. Along the way, these inhabitants transported many of their homeland’s prized vines and today Sardinia’s modern-day indigenous grape varieties claim multiple origins. Sardinia’s most important red grapes—namely Cannonau (a synonym for Grenache) and Carignan—are actually of Spanish origin.

    Vermentino, a prolific Mediterranean variety, is the island’s star white. Vermentino has a stronghold the Languedoc region of France as well as Italy’s western and coastal regions, namely Liguria (where it is called Pigato), Piedmont (where it is called Favorita) and in Tuscany, where it goes by the name, Vermentino. The best Vermentino, in arguably all of the Mediterranean, grows in Sardinia's northeastern region of Gallura where its vines struggle to dig roots deep down into north-facing slopes of granitic soils. These Vermentino vines produce highly aromatic, full and concentrated whites of unparalleled balance.

    Today aside from its dedication to viticulture, Sardinia remains committed to maintaining its natural farmlands, bucolic plains of grazing sheep and perhaps most of all, its sandy, sunny, Mediterranean beaches.
