Travel to Sardinia & Learn the Secret to Living a Century
Monique Soltani travels to Sardinia and uncovers an island populated with strong wines and strong people. Recognized as a Blue Zone, Sardinia has one of the largest concentrations of centenarians in the world.
Monique is off on an epic adventure to explore Sardinia’s five most important wine regions, eat their delicious dishes, discover the secret to living a century, all with a little mystery and a lot of magic along the way.
Tune in as we taste wine and visit the old vines of Carignano del Sulcis in Sant’Antioco. After that we depart for the Ogliastra mountains and explore century-old Cannonau vineyards and wine and dine countryside. Then rise and shine, we get the goods on how to make a Sardanian staple (hint hint: it’s their famous flatbread).
Watch as we set sail along the east coast of the island and visit in one of Sardinia’s secret beaches, Cala Gonone, the sea cave of “blue marino.” Then, we make our way over the mountain to Mamoiada, home to the to the Mamuthones, and where they make some of the world’s best Cannonau (aka grenache). Our adventure ends in Alghero, where we find Sardinia’s largest wine producer and our hosts Sella & Mosca.
