The Sella & Mosca winery is one of the most famous and important wineries in Italy, and with its 541 hectares of vineyards it is one of the largest on the entire continent. It all began more than a century ago when engineer Erminio Sella, who was the grandson of the Minister Quintino of the Kingdom of Italy, and lawyer Edgardo Mosca met in the town of Nauraghe Maiore, near Alghero. The two adventurous Piedmontese, attracted by the richness of the Sardinian land and the island's enchanting landscapes, bought 15 hectares of land and created what would become one of the most prestigious and historic wineries on the Italian wine scene.

The first excavations, dating back to the year of its foundation in 1899, served to remove the large layer of sandstone boulders that covered the surface and prevented the vines from growing. These stones now make up and paint a fascinating landscape, with some of them also housed in the estate's historical museum, which is divided into two sections. The first one is dedicated to the ancient archaeological history of the necropolis of Anghelu Ruju, while the other part focuses on the first 40 years of the estate's history, which are portrayed through the photos and testimonies of the estate's children. The property first passed into the hands of the Campari group and was recently bought for 62 million euros by Vittorio Moretti, who is the president of the Terra Moretti Group and owner of the Bellavista winery. The trademark symbolising Sella & Mosca features a bas-relief from ancient Egypt in which five men are squeezing grapes using sticks.

In addition to the estate in the province of Alghero, Sella & Mosca also has estates of 15 hectares in the Gallura region and 6 hectares in Sulcis. An astonishing range of grape varieties are grown on the estate, with over 1500 biotypes, from local varieties such as Vermentino, Cannonau, Torbato and Carignano del Sulcis, to international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as a large number of Mediterranean plants such as maritime pines, palms and eucalyptus. Biodiversity and eco-sustainability are the philosophical principles that the estate has been following uninterruptedly for years. The soils vary in morphological composition, but have a high amount of limestone, sedimentary marine origin and low water content in common. The climate is Mediterranean and very warm, with constant breezes blowing in from the sea. From this unique scenario, with its distinctive environmental elements and long winemaking tradition, come the most famous wines which, like few others, manage to truly express the essence of the Sardinian land.
