At Santa Maria la Palma, there are no Counts, Barons or Marquises. Instead, there are numerous families of humble winemakers. Fifty years ago, these winemakers were allocated a series of uncultivated plots near the city of Alghero. Rather than a silver spoon, they had strong arms, straight backs, passion and commitment. Together, they tilled the soil and planted the vines. They harvested the grapes and built up an entire vineyard. These land plots were ideal for vines, with great soil, plenty of sun and the sea nearby. They chose the grape types they wanted to grow, combining some well-known names with some lesser-known jewels. We are the children and grandchildren. Nobility is to be found in hard work and in the fruits of that labour. For this reason, our nobility is in the wines we make.
