The Monti Wine Festival, Sardinia
Monti is a century-old wine village that is renowned for its annual two day wine festival which takes place on the first Sunday of August.
The sweet smell of grapes is in the air, grapes which produce the local pale yellow delicate and refined wine. In 1975, Vermentino’s wine was confirmed by DOC (Vino a Denominazione di Origine Controllata) and in 1996 it also received recognition from the DOCG (Vino a Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita).
People come to gather in the square near the 1956 Vermentino Cellar (the first on the island to have sold bulk bottled wine), for this two-day festival sampling the wine and folk dancing to local music, with vast bottles uncorked, open air cooking and fresh produce stalls to enjoy.
Sardinian Places have a special 3 night short break offer at the lovely 4* Hotel Villa Margherita, centrally located in Golf Aranci and directly positioned by the sea. Those staying at the hotel may take the TrEnoArchè – the historical train – from Golfo Aranci to the festival.
