Sardinia is a magical place that can easily make your heart swell. It contains many worlds made of centuries-old rites and folk dances, native grapes and products from the land that grow in a wild and pure nature. Its charming soul lies in the mystical experience of walking into the vine, the ceremonious event of visiting a “mercato” and the almost religious practice to sit around a table with the whole family.
Argiolas is the foremost wine estate on the island, producing archetypal wines from native varietals. Antonio Argiolas inherited seven acres of vines from his father in 1938 and was the first on the island to convert to modern viticulture to pursue quality over quantity. His sons, Franco and Giuseppe, replanted the vineyards in the 1980s with the goal of reducing yields and focusing exclusively on Sardinian grapes. Joined by enologist Mariano Murru, the Argiolas family is today recognized as Sardinia’s leading wine producer.
