Half a day tour to enjoy beautiful landscapes and delicious wines


This is a must-see tour around the spectacular granite rocks of Gallura: Arzachena, Palau, Porto Rafael and Forte Cappellini.
Sardinia and the neighboring island of Corsica are the most ancient lands of Europe, with granite rocks that took shape in the Paleozoic era, more than half billion years ago. It is in the middle of these rocks that one of the best wines of Sardinia originates: the Vermentino.

At the end of the tour, we stop at the SURRAU cellar where you will taste one of the best Vermentino wines, together with other varieties of wine, bread, salami & cheese. The cellar of SURRAU in Gallura offers an intimate venue for visitors in a unique space, without barriers between the beautiful interior and the exterior vineyard landscape. Feel free to explore with the SURRAU staff who can help guide you in discovering the story of the winery, the secrets of winemaking and the traditional aging process.

A Recent Review of this tour

My husband and I really enjoyed our tour. Matteo knows everything about the area. He's very personable, very helpful and considerate with our needs. He's very pleasant and went out of his way to make our tour of Costa Smeralda really memorable. At the end of the tour he surprised us with a bottle of red wine. It was really nice. Highly recommended.
