Alghero: Wine and Olive Oil Tasting at a Local Farm

1. Alghero: Wine and Olive Oil Tasting at a Local Farm

On arrival, you'll be directed to your table in the tasting room by your guide. Your table will already be set with 5 different glasses and a small tray containing your appetizers to pair with the wines during the guided tasting. Your guide will start by sharing information about the farm history, the local area, and the culture, followed by the guided tasting of each wine. You'll learn about the variety of grapes, perfume, taste, and suggested food pairings for each wine. The experience ends with a proof of a top quality extra-virgin olive oil prepared by traditional cold pressing techniques and served with traditional bread. At the end you'll have the opportunity to purchase some of the products you've tried to take home with you. After the tasting, take a nice walk through the vineyard on your own to take some pictures.

Alghero: 2.5-Hour Private Walking Tour w/ a Local Guide

2. Alghero: 2.5-Hour Private Walking Tour w/ a Local Guide

Join this private walking tour led by a local guide to discover the beautiful city of Alghero, one of Sardinia's most picturesque medieval cities. Although largely given over to tourism, the town hasn't given up its unique character and it retains a proud and independent spirit. During this 2.5-hour tour, your expert guide will take you to discover the secrets and the wonders of this ancient city surrounded by sturdy defense walls that were built between the 13th and 16th-century and characterized by the preserved usage of the Catalan language (and, for this reason, nicknamed “la Barceloneta”, little Barcelona). See the majestic Cattedrale (cathedral) di Santa Maria, the Piazza Civica, the Church of S. Francesco with its beautiful 13th-century cloister and the Church of S. Michele with its brightly colored majolica dome. Marvel in front of the 14th-century Torre Porta a Terra, which is all that remains of Porta a Terra, one of the two main gates into the medieval city. Then, get to see Torre di San Giovanni, an impressive medieval tower now used to stage temporary art exhibitions. Alghero's animated historic center is indeed a terrific place to hang out, besides being one of the best preserved in Sardinia. Just one tip: don't forget to bring your camera with you.

This was one of the highlights, we had so far. Marvelous place, friendly people, good background information, and certainly really beautiful wines. Not that many, but all handmade. As well as the olive oil. Absolutely delicious. Ideal for homecoming presents and for yourselves to take back home some of the sardegna easy going.

Antonio is a great tour guide. He showed not only great knowledge, but also flexibility (we postponed our sightseeing by half an hour because the previously purchased cooking course lasted 5 hours instead of 3), a sense of humor, cordiality and hospitality. I heartily recommend! It was a really great day. :)

The tasting and the explanations are very interesting. The wine is delicious, as are the cheeses and olives that accompany it. We had a great time. For an additional € 5, it is also possible to take a tour of the vineyard and orchard.

Beautiful winery with enthusiastic employees who provide detailed explanations about wine and olive production. Delicious wines too! Much nicer than expected!

Very interesting! Our guide was very passionate and really clear with all the explanations!
