Vine cultivation in Ogliastra and throughout Sardinia dates back to the Nuragic period.
In fact wine containers in typical Sardinian culture, the askoidi jugs, have been found in the nuragic complex of Bau Nuraxi di Triei, in the Telavé locality.
The particular morphological conditions of the territory and the consequent microclimate of Ogliastra have favored the breeding of different native vines. One out of all, however, has managed to carve out a respectable space: the Cannonau.
This grape has found its natural habitat in the Ogliastra area and over time has become the symbol of the enology of these places.
