From Gallura to Oliena

The vineyards lies in the heart of Gallura and in the region of Oliena. Together the vineyards consists 25 ha of mainly Vermentino and Cannonau and is purposefully divided into specialised plots.

Is Sardinia’s only DOCG appellation, and covers white Vermentino-based wines from a large area at the northern end of the island. The title held DOC status from 1975 until September 1996, when it became the island’s first DOCG

Covering the north-eastern corner of Sardinia, the catchment area for the DOCG is surprisingly large (several times bigger than those of Alghero, Vernaccia di Oristano and Malvasia di Bosa combined). It corresponds roughly to the province of Olbia-Tempio, which itself corresponds roughly to the historical Gallura region (the Gallurese dialect is still spoken there today). In the west, its southern boundary traces the path of the Coghinas river, then veers north slightly around the Monti di Ala hills before reaching the east coast near Posada.


Different than the rest of the island the terroir of Gallura is manly dominated by granitic soil. This gives the wine a typical mineralise flavour and structure.
