Cantine Sardus Pater
Sardus Pater Winery is on Sant’Antioco Island, in the South Western part of Sardinia. Established in 1949 as a limited liability cooperative company, activities have started in 1955. Through the years wine production has been enhanced, focusing especially on Carignano grapes variety. Grapes, supplied by 200 associates, come from a 300 hectares area planted with vines. There are mainly Carignano vineyards and the most ancient ones are located on Sant’Antioco Island. They date back to at least 50 years, planted on sandy soil with low yields per hectare, producing top quality grapes. Out of these vineyards, the Winery produces its most refined red wines. Since 1994 grape harvest the winery starts producing also Vermentino. There is also a limited but very well cared for production of Moscato and Nasco, cultivated in ungrafted vine-yards, and Monica and Cannonau. Every bottle produced comes from an accurate selection of grapes and a careful wine-making, to guarantee customers have a top-quality wine. The enological management of the company is up to the enologist Francesco Bertagna with the enological consultancy by Riccardo Cotarella.
