The Cantina Ogliastra winery was founded in 1959 as a social winery, pivotal in the area’s wine and wine making activity. Its history is indissolubly intertwined with the vicissitudes of this territory.
A corner of Sardinia that can rightly be defined as an island within an island because historically it has always been a different area from the rest of the island.
Perhaps due to the difficulty of being reached, perhaps due to the particular geological conformation (the famous Tacchi of Ogliastra are limestone-dolomite formations of Palaeozoic origin), perhaps for the environment and the people of these places, the Ogliastra has preserved traditions, cultures and all its own characteristics.
This area of Sardinia is known throughout the world for being the land of Longevity , one of the so-called Blue Zones for the high number of people that touch, reach or exceed 100 years of age.
Over the years the Ogliastra winery has been able to carve out a significant space in the Sardinian wine scene, bringing to the attention of the market wines that embody the history and characteristics of this terroir.
Today the company has about 200 winegrowers , people who live and work their own vineyards that are distributed evenly throughout the territory, embracing 21 of the 23 municipalities that make up Ogliastra.
The grapes are then transferred to the modern and functional production facility in Tortolì, where the premises for the reception, sorting and processing of the grapes, the analysis laboratory, the offices and the company wine shop are located.
