Very Disappointing

Terrible service. You can certainly find better quality of wine and cheeper prices in the local shop. If you are a tourist in the area I would highly recommend to avoid this place.

A wonderful tasting

Fairytale place. A beautiful house with an adjoining vineyard. Apart from wine tasting, we can taste regional meats and cheeses. A wonderful and wonderful owner, Laura, who talks about her vineyard in an interesting and accessible way. Possibility to buy products from the Mancini winery. Being a compulsory part of the program in Sardinia.

What an amazing experience we had! Laura and her assistants were absolutely wonderful. Their hospitality was first-class. The wine . . . oh the wine! It was really delicious. They also provided several plates of appetizers that were also very good. I can't say enough about how fantastic our experience was. Laura is so passionate about her wine, and she was a tremendous host! I highly recommend this tasting/tour!

Mancini's vineyard is simply lovely: immersed in the magic of the Mediterranean landscape of Gallura and its perfumes, surrounded but gentle hills and granite rocks shaped by the mistral wind and right opposite one of the most beautiful medieval sites of that area, San Leondardo's castle.
Laura Mancini, the owner, is a lovely host. I visited the vineyards with a group of six friends from all over Europe, last week. She welcomed us under a centenarian wild olive tree, at sunset, and we felt like we were living a beautiful dream. Together with Magdalena, a great guide, she took us for a tour and a wine tasting and she bewitched us talking about the history of passion and technical skill of this family company of winemakers, founded by her father. Laura's hospitality is delicious and warm; the wine tasting is held in a typical "Stazzo gallurese", one of the ancient and amazing farhouses of Gallura. But the best part was the wine: all of the wines that we tasted were excellent, wisely paired and accompanied by an abundant Sardinian antipasto (cold cuts, cheeses, olives, carasau bread). Gallura is well-known all around the world for its DOCG white wine, the "Vermentino di Gallura", and Mancini's range doesn't disappoint for its quality and variety. I loved especially the sparkling vermentino "Adelasia", which is a gem that every wine lover should taste, but they are all very good. I was surprised even by the quality of the red wines (the pure Cannonau and the blend).
It was a perfect experience that I highly recommend to both nature and wine lovers!!!

The vineyard is in a beautiful setting and we were given an excellent guided tour by Magdalena. The tasting was run by the owner Laura Mancini in the shade of an ancient olive tree and was accompanied by delicious platters of typical Sardinian antipasto. Well worth a visit and we would go back.

Lovely tour of the vineyard, tasting, eating and chatting!
Aug 2015 • Couples
This was a lovely two hours! Having booked via emailing the company, we visited for a two hour tour and tasting. We arrived at 11am and left at 1pm after having had a tour of the vines with talk about the particular grapes and varieties. We were then led through the various buildings and had a talk on the "old times" of the vineyard and recent developments. We were then led to the veranda where there were breads, cheeses, meats, olives and other bites to eat, plus we tried glasses of three types of wine. The presenter was a lovely lady who spoke fantastic English and even helped us with some elements of our attempts at speaking the odd bit of Italian. She was very encouraging! A delightful morning and I would thoroughly recommend it!

Great visit to a lovely vineyard!

We passed the gate on the road to Luogosanto and it was closed. On the way back luckly it was open so we drove in. We met the wonderful Claudia who told us we could join a group at 18.00 (because normally you have to book the winetasting). She gave us an excursion around the vineyard with good information, and together with Simona they prepared a very nice winetasting with delicious Sardinian antipasti. The wine is beautiful and it says enough that we bought 18 bottles (12 white 6 red) of the Piero Mancini estate wines... A big GRAZIE to Claudia and Simone for this lovely experience!
