Is not a secret that Audarya is one of my favorite producer. I had the honor to meet the patriarch, and master winemaker Enrico Pala and the remarkable family behind the success of the winery. They were so welcoming with me and since the first day our friendship blossomed.
Why it is so easy to fall in love with Audarya’s wines?
Audarya means “nobility of the soul” in ancient oriental language. This name reflects the central value of the project, which is respect in everything they do, from the terroir to the cultural heritage, the sustainability principle, and their beautiful region, Sardegna.
When it comes to my experience with Audarya wines, it was love at first taste. They were the most amazing grapes I’ve ever tasted. I absolutely fell in love with the beauty of their vineyard, the family’s history and creativity of the new generation represented by Enrico’s children, Nicoletta and Salvatore. One thing that immediately caught my eye and eventually conquered my heart was their fairytale-inspired labels.
"THIS WINE IS LIKE REVERSED MAGIC, WHERE THE MAGICIAN COMES OUT OF THE RABBIT’S HAT. IT’S THE VERMENTINO OF AUDARYA, DESIGNED TO SURPRISE AND INTEREST EVERY TIME. IT’S LIKE PASSING THROUGH THE MIRROR, FOLLOWING THE WHITE RABBIT, AND FINDING THE WINE YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN LOOKING FOR.”
"THE LIGHT IS THE WHITE AND BLINDING LIGHT OF THE ISLANDS. AND THIS CITY IS AN ISLAND INSIDE AND ISLAND, SURROUNDED AS IT IS BY WATER AND REFLECTION. HERE, THE WIND MIXES UP THE PERFUMES OF SEA AND LAND. TELLING TALES OF ADVENTURES AND WALLS TO CLIMB, THE SUN COMES DOWN AND PEOPLE LISTEN, SITTING ON THE PROMENADE, WITH A GLASS OF LIGHT IN THE HAND.”
“TO BE PAIRED WITH BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE AND BEAUTIFUL MOMENT, IN BEAUTIFUL PLACES, WHILE TELLING AND LISTENING TALES. GOES WITH MUSIC, LOOKS AND PROMISES, BUT ALSO A TABLE FULL OF LIGHT FIRST COURSES, FISH, OR WHITE MEAT.”
" THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN LISTENING TO TALES THAN ACCOMPANYING THEM WITH A GLASS OF WINE. THE BETTER THE WINE, THE MORE INTRIGUING THE TALE; THE MORE INTRIGUING THE WINE, THE BETTER THE TALE. AND THIS TALE TELLS ABOUT A RED WINE TO WHICH EVERYONE ASKED WHY IT WAS CALLED LIKE A WOMAN. THE WINE ANSWERED FROM THE GLASS WITH A SMILE, THINKING ABOUT ALL THE STORIES THAT COULD BE TOLD."
" IF THERE IS ANYONE WHO DESERVES TO BE CALLED KING, THAT'S HIM: A STRONG AND ELEGANT SOVEREIGN, PROUD AND NOBLE, RESPECTED AND LOVED. HE KNOWS HOW TO LIVE, THE KING, A DEEP AND MEDITATIVE THINKER, THE KNOWLEDGE OF MAKING HIS OWN HISTORY. HIS MAJESTY, THE CANNONAU."
"A MEDIEVAL VILLAGE USED TO BE RIGHT HERE, WHERE OUR NURACADA WINE IS MADE. WE CULTIVATE AN ANTIQUE INDIGENOUS SARDINIAN VINE, THE BOVALE AND NURACADA IS ITS FINEST AND PUREST EXPRESSION. IT'S FLAVOR SHOWCASE CENTURIES OF HISTORY AND THE POPULATIONS THAT LIVED THIS LAND, WITH THEIR PASSION, WILL AND RESPECT."
I would like to invite you to taste and fall in love with them too!
