Sella & Mosca

The largest wine production and trading company in the Italian region (island) Sardinia based in Alghero in the province of Sassari. The company was founded in 1899 by Emilio Sella and Edgardo Mosca and has developed into one of the largest and most modern wineries in Italy. In the history of more than a century, the winery has had a major impact on the development of Sardinian viticulture. The in-house museum with historical documents and numerous finds from excavations is a sight worth seeing.
