11.50am: We took a flight from Rome at 9am and got into Olbia at about 9.40am. It’s a quick flight and after picking up our rental car we made a stop at Pittulongu beach before checking into our hotel. Yes, Sardinia is that dreamy!

4.57pm: In 2004, Daniela experimented with producing vino Spumante metodo classico as she explained that at Christmas it was common to drink Vermentino frizzante (sparkling wine) which was too sweet for her taste.
