Is there really a secret behind the fact that Sardinians are among the longest-lived populations and that Sardinia is also called the island of centenarians? Yes, there may be, and it is in the island’s unique geographical position, in the centre of the Mediterranean. Thanks to the benevolence of the earth, the pure waters and the hot sun for most of the year, this location has been able to create an ecosystem that is highly beneficial for humans, animals, vegetation and trees. Nature has been so generous that Sardinians have inherited and transformed it into one of the world’s unique nutritional legacies.
For thirty years we at Delphina have been travelling Sardinia in search of producers. Even more than the quality of the products, we are interested in people, their stories, the choices they have made, the desire to be guardians of a tradition without sacrificing innovation in techniques. We choose ancient grapes rich in polyphenols, the finest varieties of olives, antioxidant elixirs that enrich any dish with rejuvenating flavours, but also mature cheeses, herbs and spices, mullet roe and jams. It is Sardinia at its most authentic, it is the work of small producers who maintain a tradition and which we at the Valle Dell’Erica Resort are honoured to make known to the rest of the world.
The Selezione Delphina is the name of a wide range of food and wine products and natural cosmetics that we invite you to try. They are exclusive products for Delphina hotels & resorts customers, which can be bought in our resorts and taken home as a delicious souvenir of your holiday. Promoting a genuine local food oriented® philosophy is not a habit or a fad, it is our constant commitment to preserving genuine centuries-old authenticity.
