Sardinia150 miles (240km) off the west coast of mainland Italy, is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Since the mid-18th Century, Sardinia has been one of Italy's five autonomous regions (the others being Sicily, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Trentino-Alto Adige and the Aosta Valley).

Happily, a handful of producers are creating high-quality wines, which are gradually gaining international recognition. The majority of Sardinian vineyards lie on the western side of the island, which is also where its most location-specific DOCs are found.

The exception to this westerly bias is Vermentino di Gallura, the island's only DOCG, whose catchment area covers the island's northeastern corner. However the most familiar appellations to many drinkers are likely to be the island-wide DOCs Cannonau di Sardegna and Vermentino di Sardegna.
