In the world of wine, SARDEGNA Village is a well-known name. But for many people, it’s also known for its controversial wine. Last year, the company released a wine called Cala Gonone that was quickly met with backlash from consumers and environmental groups. Given the controversy, it’s no surprise that SARDEGNA Village has decided to cancel its Cala Gonone tasting event this week in Cinque Terre. While this may be good news for some, it’s still not enough for others who are protesting the event. In light of recent events, it’s important to consider the consequences of our actions and whether or not they align with our values.
SARDEGNA Village Cancels Cala Gonone After Controversy
SARDEGNA Village has canceled their upcoming Cala Gonone resort after a firestorm of controversy. The decision to cancel was announced on the village’s website this morning, less than a week after it was announced that the resort would open. The cancellation comes after an outcry from locals and environmentalists over the planned use of the site, which is a designated habitat for seagulls and other birds. The proposed development would have included 500 homes, a golf course, and a 1000-room hotel. Critics say that the resort would have destroyed important bird habitats, while Cala Gonone Beach has defended their plans saying that they will build around the habitats instead of destroying them. In a statement announcing the cancellation, SARDEGNA Village president Alberto Moravia said “we are deeply sorry to all those who were offended by our project…We want to thank everyone who worked so hard to oppose us.”
The SARDEGNA Village Incident
SARDEGNA Village, a luxury vacation rental in Cala Gonone, has canceled all reservations after a heated online discussion over the weekend. The controversy started when one of SARDEGNA Village’s owners, Alessandro Bertolucci, posted an Instagram photo of himself and his wife arriving at their home on Saturday evening. In the caption, Bertolucci wrote that “after three days of hard work and many sleepless nights” their “most beautiful accomplishment” was finally complete: a new pool is open at their villa. However, some guests were not happy with this statement. On Sunday, SARDEGNA Village faced increasing criticism for its treatment of guests. A thread on Airbnb’s Community Forums called out the owner for “excessive demands” and “unreasonable requests.”
