The name “Mesa” – which means “table” in Sardinian, as in Spanish – represents the essence of this winery. Nourishment, conviviality, maternal love, simplicity and all the scents of Sardinia.
The Mesa winery was born as a declaration of love for Sardinia. A perfect match of beauty and goodness, a celebration of this region’s generosity and culture, through one of its precious treasures: wine.
In short: a very special culinary experience. On the one hand you have the innovative kitchen and the top-quality products used by Chef Riccardo Vivarelli and Alessio Mori; on the other hand you’ll have the chance to taste the wines of Sardinia, with their rich flavours that speak of a magical land.
In the unique setting of Vitique, which combines elegance and informality.
Price of the dinner: 40 euros per person. Wine-tasting dinner starts at 8.30pm. Following: tour of the Santa Margherita Tenimenti Toscani winery.
