Food and wine are an important part of the celebrations.

My name is Anna Maria, I'm native from Sardinia and, when I was young, I hated wine! But I worked hard in my father's small vineyard. I studied languages at the University of Cagliari so that I travelled and lived in many different countries. After University, I moved to Paris but I quickly realized that I wanted to live in my own land.
When I was living in France, I started to appreciate wine, that's why in 2007, I graduated in a Master of Wine and Food Marketing and Communication and after a very great experience as intern in the famous Sicilian winery Duca di Salaparuta, Vini Corvo, Florio, I moved back to Sardinia.
For five years, I worked for the very innovative winery Vigne Surrau, where I contributed to launch the wine tourism in Sardinia. This was a fantastic experience where I had the chance to travel around the world and build an important experience in wine business.
After thousands of wine tastings and hundreds of events, I felt I wanted to change and I needed a new challenge so I decided to work on my own.
After an inspiring visit to Napa Valley and Tuscany, I became a licenced tour guide and started-up Sardegna Bella e Buona, the first and unique tour guide specialized in wine and food tours in Sardinia, but with a special eye for culture and traditions that make our terroir so unique!
I'm a second level sommelier with a deep knowledge of Sardinian wines and producers and now, I'm so glad to guide you at the discovery of the secrets of my land, surprisingly modern but with an ancient soul.
Into the true hearth of the island.
