Sella & Mosca is a winery that arose thanks to two men and their love of the land. This estate is now 650 hectares in total, 520 of which are vineyards, making it one of the largest estates in Europe. Located on the Italian island of Sardinia, this winery has been providing both vines and wines to the world since 1890.

History

Two men from Piedmont – Erminio Sella, an engineer, and Edgardo Mosca, a lawyer –took a trip to Sardinia in the late 1800s. When they set eyes on the beautiful untouched land before them, they decided that this was the perfect site to create their own winery and to name it after themselves. Thus, Sella & Mosca was born in 1890.

The winery has a spring, a site for rootstock grafting, wineries, housing for the workers and their families, an elementary school, and a chapel. In 2002, Sella & Mosca was bought by Gruppo Campari. In 2016, it was sold to Terra Moretti.
