Cantina Mesa. The pride of a Sardinian wine.

An estate which was created as a declaration of love for Sardinia. Here the island’s generosity and culture are celebrated through one of its most precious treasures: wine.

Cantina Mesa, as wonderful and unique as its birthplace.

Cantina Mesa began in 2004 as the fulfillment of the dream of its founder Gavino Sanna, the most celebrated name in Italian advertising. Sanna wanted to create something as extraordinary, unique and simple as his beloved Sardinia, on the island for the island.  

Located in Sant’Anna Arresi on a hillside which has been carved out by the winds and is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, Cantina Mesa rises up on high, overlooking the gently rolling hills down towards the Porto Pino Valley, the low-lying farmsteads known in the local dialect as “medaus” and the coves of the Porto Pino peninsula.

Among the outstanding wines grown here are: Vermentino di Sardegna, Mesa’s golden treasure, the embodiment of this distinctive terroir and the winery’s signature style, and Carignano del Sulcis, a wine which is perfectly suited to the extreme pedoclimatic conditions found in this part of Italy.

The soul of the winery is revealed in its name: Mesa in Sardinian means ‘table’, nourishment, maternal love, sharing a meal with friends, simplicity and the scents of Sardinia.


The human side is always at the forefront of our minds, respecting the needs of shepherds and farmers in rural areas is of utmost importance and work in the vineyards is carefully planned to ensure their routines go uninterrupted.
