In 1946, Sardinia was recovering from World War II. A large part of their ‘Piani di Rinascita,’ or ‘Rebirth Plans,’ was to redistribute agricultural lands. The area of Nurra, in northwest Sardinia, was reclaimed by the government and then given over to farmworkers, and, in 1959, a hundred of them formed a cooperative which led to the formation of Santa Maria la Palma. Now, they continue to honor the land of Sardinia by showcasing their native grapes and terroir in an approachable way. The sandy minerality comes through in a big way, meets up with aromas of sage plant, textured almond flour, and flavors of tangy lemon, orange, and fresh green apple. 

Pairings:
Cioppino loaded with clams, mussels, and shrimp with crusty bread for dipping
