Vigne Surrau is a young company situated in Arzachena very close to Costa Smeralda.
The property is 50 hectares of farmlands mostly cultivated with vineyards.
• THE VINEYARDS
The vineyards are located in the heart of Gallura, in the countryside of Arzachena: Capichera, Chilvagghja and Surrau, 60m to 150 m over the sea level. The ground is made up of crushed granitic stone; it is manured in autumn every two years with organic compost and worked by machine during the spring and the summer.
Grapes: Vermentino, Cannonau, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignano, Muristellu.
Plant System : Guyot and spur cord
After the branches have been tied up, to defend them from the strong Mistral which blows very hard in the Sardinian coasts, the exceeding shoots are cutted down and, before the grapes turn to color, the fruitless bunch are eliminated.
In the springtime, when necessary, the vineyards are given treatments based on sulphur and copper-salt.
The yield per hectare is around 70 quintals for the red grapes: around 90 quintals for the Vermentino.
• THE CELLARS
A very modern architecture, fully equipped with stainless steel equipments, located in the middle of the Chilvagghja vineyards to assure the immediate processing of grapes.
The harvest is fully manual. The grape stalks are gently stripped; immediately after crushing the must is separated from the skins and fermentation is started under controlled temperature.
Instead the red grapes macerate for a few weeks, two or three, to extract the typical aromas and scents from the skins.

Rude and lazy staff...came for a tasting and to ship some cases back to Milan and was treated terribly. The place was nearly empty and we watched the 7 people working run around like they were managing the busiest restaurant in Sardegna...they reluctantly seated us at the bar and we waited nearly 20 minutes to taste some mediocre white wines. We saw bread and cheeses being given to other tables, when we asked to order they told us they “didn’t have a kitchen”. The space is chic and we were really looking forward to enjoying and buying their product but I can’t spend money in a place with such poor customer service skills.
On holiday from the US in Sardinia, my wife and I found Surrau through some lucky Googling. We LOVED it! Wonderful wines, informative tour and the staff did a great job navigating the language barrier to describe the wines. Some of the reviews on here are harsh or downright wrong. We received ample food, fairly priced wine and good service! Long story short — if you’re in Costa Smeralda, Surrau is definitely worth a visit!
