Description

Region

The history of wine in these lands is intertwined with the history of our family.

It all began in far-off 1970 with the commitment and enthusiasm of a wine-grower who firmly believed in his dream: to promote both the typical wines of Usini and his region with its unique features.

The grape varieties that best represent our company and the territory are Vermentino, Cannonau and Cagnulari. Grape varieties in the hills of Usini find the ideal microclimate to grow and become unique and inimitable. These vineyards from which our wines are born are intimately linked to the history of our family and to that of our territory.

It all began in 1970 with the commitment and enthusiasm of a wine-grower who firmly believed in his dream: to promote both the typical wines of Usini and his region with its unique features. Far-sighted and wise, and supported by a passionate desire to know and experiment, the patriarch Giovanni Cherchi brought an ancient native grape species, Cagnulari, to the fore once more.

Grower

Giovanni Cherchi is considered a pioneer of Sardinian viticulture and winemaking, not just because he rediscovered Cagnulari, but also thanks to his work to improve the qualities of Vermentino.

He was one of the first to launch “Vermentino di Usini” on the market with a clear identity linked to its area of origin.

Despite the success achieved, we remain true to our roots and consider ourselves first and foremost winegrowers; protagonists of each production phase, from the vineyard to the bottle, and custodians of this farming, cultural and human heritage.

Today, we still safeguard and promote the environment in which our wines have originated: an intertwining of fragrances and sensations of wind and sun, of land and people.
