The Cantina Santa Maria La Palma is a large winery located in Alghero, in the north west of Sardinia, in the region known as “The Wine Island”.
The company was founded in 1959 and today manages 700 hectares of vineyards, has a production plant of over 50,000 square meters and produces about 5 million bottles every year, which is distributed in Italy and around the world.
The territory is gathered by 300 winegrowers who work together.
Our history stretches way back, to when time was marked by the passing of the seasons, and the farmworkers of the countryside of Alghero had nothing to rely on but the soil and their own ingenuity.
It is a story that start 0n the 1959 and speaks about the ability to trust one another, and of the desire to build something great, without forgetting how much beauty and how much value are hidden away in what surrounds us.
