A great passion and solid technical skills prompted Ferruccio Deiana to found a winery, finally fulfilling a long-time dream to have his own vineyards and make his own wines.
His mission was drawing the attention of winelovers to Basso Campidano and Parteolla, lands of beautiful nature and rich culture. This part of Sardinia, extending between Cagliari and the crags of Punta Serpeddì, in the rugged territory of Sarrabus-Gerrei, is celebrated for its sweet hills and fertile valleys. Since antiquity, these lands have been a lucky realm of grapevine, wheat, and olive.
Ferruccio's passion was immediately supported by his wife, Mariagrazia. Later it was met by the enthusiasm of his son, Dario, who helped Ferruccio for years until he finally joined the winery officially, following his father's steps with comparable passion and commitment.
The original core of the vineyards (40 ha) was planted in the early 1990s at Su Leunaxi, in the countryside of Settimo San Pietro, while the area of Sibiola, in the municipality of Serdiana, hosts the new vineyards.
The grape varieties are those typical of Sardinia: Vermentino, Monica, Cannonau, Carignano, Bovale (also called Bovaleddu), Barbera Sarda, Malvasia, Nasco and Moscato.
The winery is modern, and the wines are produced using the most recent methodologies and state-of-the-art technical equipment. The grapes are selected and harvested at the right level of maturity. The different winemaking processes (fermentation, maturation, aging) are carried on carefully, and are constantly monitored by Ferruccio, Dario and their collaborators.
