The history of the Argiolas winery is that of the land and the family. Here vineyards and wines have a link with the people who planted them, cared for them, who gave birth to their essence and character.?????
Antonio Argiolas founded the winery in the late 1930’s. For decades he maintained the lands, and continued to be present even when he passed the baton to his children. Today his grandchildren, the third generation of the family work there. The family was born and work in a precious territory. It is in the middle of the Mediterranean, with its distinctive climate, between the sun and the wine with landscapes and soils perfect for vines and vineyards. Keeping this all intact is a responsibility, a daily commitment that guides them in every decision. The land for the vineyards is carefully chosen for the soil, exposure, climate and altitude. Each estate is different and makes the grapes it gives birth to unique.
There are five estates that make up the land of Argiolas:
Serdiana, in the countryside of Sibola, which is closest to the winery. Host to some of the best known traditional Sardinian vines; producing both white and red grapes.
Sisini, amongst the hills in the historic region of Trexenta, north of Cagliari and Serdiana. The soils here are composed of marl, sandstone and limestone which is ideal for growing grapes for their white wines, such as Vermentino.
Sa Tranca, located between the municipalities of Selegas and Guamaggiore. It is a hilly area composed of brown and regular soils and white limestone soils that make it permeable. Here they mainly cultivate red grapes.
Vigne Vecchie, on the hills close to the municipality of Selegas. It is located on a calcareous and marly relief that presents 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 land, it is an area particularly suitable for the production of fine wines.
Is Solinas is located along the cost on the Gulf of Palmas in the southwest of Sardinia. The microclimate, thanks to the action of the wind and large temperature range, is ideal for the cultivation of the Carignano grape. The sandstones of these soils retain the humidity of the nights, which thus naturally protects from drought and gives life to lush vineyards with incredibly rich fruits.
In keeping with being in tune with all the lands, Argiolas Estate cultivate the vines and produce wines with sustainable methods that respect the territory. They use water and soil responsibly; they ration irrigations, minimize the use of chemicals, and use a pruning technique that prolongs the life of the vines.
