Mora&Memo is the result of a passion that can only come from those who live the vines
and breathe wine since their birth, is the result of a tradition that is lost in the previous four
generations and, above all, is the passion of Elisabetta Pala “Wine” daughter and also “Wine”
nephew of art... In this environment Elisabetta grow with her ideas about the wine realizing
Mora&Memo her Wine dream in 2013. The Sardinian wine style she always dreamed of, from
an extraordinary land like Sardinia that has still more to say more to be told more to be discovered.
And so Mora&Memo has its own interpretation of the characteristic image of Sardinia, the Sardinian
Morish found in the Sardinian flag is revisited in a feminine key giving life to the feminine version, the
Mora, a woman strongly linked to the memory and the tradition of her land but always with an eye to
the world outside.
Sardinian terroir, my place
Sardinia, second largest island of Italy after Sicily represent the oldest emerged land in the Mediterranean area. Is an island that includes so many things together... from the montains with the snow to the beautiful beaches, forests, canyons, deserts... so many different plants than any other place in the world... this is Sardinia, this is where we grow our Vineyards
This land resembles no other place. Sardinia is something else. Enchanting spaces and distances to travel-nothing finished, nothing definitive. It is like freedom itself. (D.H.Lawrence, "Sea and Sardinia", 1921
Mora&Memo vineyards are located in the south-eastern corner of Sardinia, a rolling hill area surrounded
by the Sette Fratelli peaks, the tallest mountains of the south of the island. It’s an area of strong winegrowing
vocation, where the white limestone soil is punctuated by the green of the vines and the olive
trees together with the Mediterranean flora. The grapes are Vermentino, Cannonau, Monica and a small
part of Sauvignon Blanc, with also Bovale, Nuragus and Nasco, all traditional or native varietals of
the island of Sardinia.
