Sardinia: Where People Live Forever

The most interesting fact about the island of Sardinia is that it boasts the largest number of centenarians per capita than any other place on Earth.  Their consumption of clean, simple “peasant food,” together with red wine rich in antioxidants and polyphenols just may be the reason for their longevity.

Our Sardinian menu highlights the mainstays of their Mediterranean diet – legumes, vegetables, olive oil, pasta, cheese and seafood.  Those together with, Cannonau, a red wine made from grapes indigenous to the island could be the key to living a long and healthy life.
