the oldest traces of vine farming in the western Mediterranean
And it is in Sardinia that the oldest traces of vine farming in the western Mediterranean have been discovered. On the Sa Osa site archaeologists have found vernaccia and malvasia seeds dating back 3000 years (from 1300 to 1100 BC) in a well that served as a "paleo-refrigerator". And for this reason, we are now certain that the ancient Sardinians mastered the cultivation of vines since the Nuragic period. An art that has never been lost over time and that, little by little, has been handed down up to this day.
