Antonio Argiolas in the late thirties founded the winery. For decades he made it grow, and he continued to be present even when he passed the baton to his children. Today his grandchildren, the third generation of the family, work here.
"We were born and work in a precious territory. It is in the middle of the Mediterranean that softens its climate, between sun and wind, with landscapes and soils perfect for vines and vineyards".
Preserving and preserving all this heritage intact is a responsibility, a daily commitment that guides the Argiolas family in every decision.
The vineyards are carefully chosen for the soil, exposure, climate, altitude. Each estate is different and makes the bunches it gives birth to unique.
The Serdiana estates, in the Sibiola countryside, are the closest to the winery. They host some of the best known traditional Sardinian vines and extend for about 45 hectares, divided into two parts: Iselis of about 35 hectares and Su Pranu of about 10 hectares. In these vineyards both white and red grapes are produced and new cultivation techniques are put to the test, before using them in the other estates.
The Sisini estate extends for about 50 hectares in the hills in the historic region of Trexenta, north of Cagliari and Serdiana. The soils are at an altitude between about 200 and 250 meters above sea level and are composed of marl, sandstone and marly limestone. Here the microclimate, the soil and the exposure are ideal for growing the grapes for our white wines such as those of the Vermentino vine, originally from the north of Sardinia and planted in the area by Antonio Argiolas, the founder of the winery.
The Sa Tanca estate extends for about 80 hectares between the municipalities of Selegas and Guamaggiore. It is in a hilly area, between 250 and 350 meters above sea level. It is composed of brown and regular soils and calcareous white soils that make the soil permeable. Here, mainly red berried grapes are grown: the intense rains distributed throughout the year and the sudden changes in temperature make the microclimate ideal for the grapes to develop and maintain the elements that will give the wine its color and aromas.
The Vigne Vecchie estate extends for about 40 hectares on the hills near the municipality of Selegas. It is located on a limestone and marly relief that has both brown and deep soils and soils with a strong presence of limestone, very suitable for white grape varieties. Thanks to the good altitude and the characteristics of the soil it is a territory particularly suitable for the production of fine wines.
The Is Solinas estate extends for about 15 hectares along the coast on the Gulf of Palmas, in the southwest of Sardinia. The microclimate, thanks to the action of the wind and the large temperature range, is ideal for the cultivation of the Carignano grape. The sandstones of these soils retain the humidity of the night which thus naturally protects from drought and gives life to lush vines with incredibly rich fruits.
